Rodriguez to run for mayor
SAN MARCOS -NEWS
By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — Councilmember Christopher Rodriguez has tossed his hat into the ring for mayor. Rodriguez announced his candidacy for mayor on July 4. In his announcement letter, Rodriguez directed his attention to COVID-19 and its impacts on the city. “COVID-19 has unleashed a level of economic uncertainty the City of Oceanside has never experienced,” Rodriguez writes. “With record unemployment, hundreds of permanent business closures and evolving health orders that restrict the most basic of our constitutional freeRODRIGUEZ doms in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.” According to Rodriguez, Oceanside “deserves a leader that can both unite and fight for us” now more than ever. When asked why he decided to run, Rodriguez told The Coast News via email that Oceanside needs a mayor who can “advocate aggressively on a local, state and federal level.” “I have a vision and plan to get Oceanside through the economic damages COVID19 has caused to ensure we maintain high levels of public services, City budget stays balanced and our rainy day reserves stay strong,” he said. Rodriguez is now one of three current city councilmembers who are TURN TO RODRIGUEZ ON A7

Carlsbad leads North County in federal PPP loan recipients By Dan Brendel
Data graphic by Dan Brendel
REGION — Among North County cities, Carlsbad is home to the most businesses — by far — that received federal stimulus dollars from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Since late March, the federal government has approved $500 billion in low-interest loans to businesses and other organizations in order to help them survive the economic fallout from COVID-19. For the first time since the stimulus began, the federal government this week released data about recipi-
ents. Of the more than 14,000 loans administered to North County businesses — loans ranging in size from a couple hundred dollars to upwards of $10 million — small loans (less than $150,000) account for the huge majority, or about 86 percent. Carlsbad businesses account for nearly one-quarter of all recipients. North County businesses receiving some of the largest loans include SeaSpine Holdings (medical implants manufacturer), Islands Restaurants, Two Jinn (bail bonds) and Rubio’s Restaurants.

Carlsbad City Council filing period opens July 13 By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — At least four candidates have emerged for the last of the city’s newly formed district elections for a seat on the City Council. In November, voters in districts 2 and 4 will mail in or head to the polls to decide who will represent those areas of the city. And the filing period opens July 13, according Carlsbad City Clerk Services Manager Sheila Cobian. While the four — Maria Teresa Acosta (she goes by Teresa), Keith Blackburn, Lela Panagides and Phil Urbina — have announced and started raising money, Cobian said the city is encouraging others to run as
well. “There’s a checklist of about seven things they’ll need to bring back,” she said, “but we’ll go over everything with them in a candidate handbook.” First and foremost, candidates must call and make an appointment with the City Clerk’s office, Cobian said. From there, city staff will walk through the process, which includes nomination forms. The nomination papers must be signed by 20 residents in the candidates’ respective district. Cobian recommends 30, just to be safe, as many residents are still unaware of the district boundaries. The signatures will then be verified by the
San Diego County Registrar of Voters. Candidates must also pay $25 for the filing fee, and if they so choose, $1,000 for 200 words for a statement of qualification in the Sample Ballot and Voter Information Pamphlet, which is sent to all registered voters in those districts by the ROV, Cobian said. The filing deadline, meanwhile, is Aug. 7. Additionally, campaign signage cannot go up, whether it’s on a residential or public property, until 30 days before the Nov. 3 election. “We are completing the district transition, so technically there is no incumbent,” Cobian said.
As for who’s already announced, Blackburn and Panagides are running for the District 2 seat. Blackburn, who won in 2016 in the last at-large City Council race, was first elected in 2008. In District 4, Acosta and Urbina are each running for public office for the first time. However, all four have begun raising funds for their campaigns. Blackburn has racked up the largest war chest as his ending cash balance as of the July 2019 through December 2019 reporting period totals $154,391.18. He raised $12,795 for the period. Pangaides, meanwhile, raised $11,664.21 and has a
$7,454.38 ending cash balance as of her financial disclosure form for 2019. Urbina, meanwhile, has raised a total of $43,479.88 since last year, including $16,770.53 for the January through June reporting timeframe and $26,350.33 cash balance. Acosta raised $7,862.76 in 2019 with a $5,350 cash balance. Acosta, Blackburn and Pangaides, though, have not filed their financial disclosure forms for the January through June period, but have until the end of July to file those with the city. To make an appointment, call the City Clerk’s office at 760-434-2808.
‘Shared Streets’ pilot program debuts over weekend By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — Following the closure of indoor dining at restaurants, bars, and wineries on July 6, the City of Encinitas’ chose a pivotal time to implement its “Shared Streets” pilot program, as downtown restaurants and businesses struggle to make ends meet after five months of mandatory health restrictions. Located between D and E street on Highway 101, the “Shared Streets” pilot program, which started on July 3 and has no scheduled end date, restricts traffic to two lanes, allowing for businesses and restaurants to set up curb-side dining and shopping without removing any public parking spaces. Partially funded by an $8,200 SANDAG grant and supplemented by the city, the exploratory program will be in place for the duration of the county’s “safer-at-home” public health order. If deemed successful, the program could be expanded to other streets in downtown Encinitas. Assistant City Manager Mark Delin spoke to the Coast News about the program. “We’re doing this to help the business community and restaurants operate as close to their original capacity as possible,” Delin said. “The purpose is to give them additional space to operate.” The project was spearheaded by Crystal Najera, Encinitas’ Climate Action Plan program administrator, and City Planner Roy Sapa’u, in consultation with Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association. “Shared Streets” dining and shopping spaces will be blocked out by water filled barriers, signage, and in the coming weeks, lined with large potted trees, which will be purchased by the city to protect customers from traffic and to create a pleasant dining experience. According to Delin, after the program is over, the trees will be replanted in northwest Leucadia as a part of the upcoming Streetscape renovations to Coast Highway 101. “We’ve long been in dis-
STARTING JULY 3, Encinitas launched its “Shared Streets” pilot program, installing barricades and closing traffic lanes on a block of Coast Highway 101. Photo by Caitlin Steinberg
cussions with the Encinitas 101 about finding ways to enliven the downtown area and make it more pedestrian and customer focused,” Delin said. “This could also be thought of a pilot program of what downtown could look like if we permanently provided these amenities to businesses.” However, thus far “shared streets” has not been an immediate success. The slow rollout over the holiday weekend was met with mixed reviews from residents and business owners as stand-still traffic backed up to intersection of Hwy 101 and Encinitas Blvd. In an effort to ease congestion and promote smooth flow of traffic, all southbound traffic has been restricted from turning left, yet local business owners doubt whether that will solve the problem. Debbie Zinniger, co-owner of Encinitas Café, supports the program and the city’s intent to help businesses however fears increased traffic will cause a further lull in business. “We were really, really slow over the 4th of July weekend, the first weekend they reduced traffic to one lane. Merchants were disappointed,” Zinniger said. Despite running the Encinitas Café for over 31 years, Zinniger has never before experienced the level of financial hardships
wraught by COVID. After closing for nine weeks this spring, she intends to push through the county’s most recent round of closures, hoping for the best. “With ‘Shared Streets,’ I should be able to get about three or four more tables out there,” Zinniger said. “We’re going to try it but if that doesn’t work then I may be forced to close my doors permanently. How much money can you lose? How deep do you go? “I always said if there was a second shut down, I probably wouldn’t make it but we’re going to try,” Zinniger said. The Roxy, owned by Paula Vrakas, is among the first restaurants to submit their permit, setting out tables for customers within days of the program’s rollout. While the first weekend was slow, by the middle of the next week all of the Roxy’s “shared streets” tables were filled with customers. Despite moderate success within the first few days, Vrakas doubted the program would be truly successful unless the Encinitas City Council allows alcohol to be served in the right of way. “Nobody wants to go out to dinner and not have a cocktail or wine,” Vrakas said. “If you can sit out front and enjoy a drink with your meal, I think it’ll be
successful. It could be really good for businesses and downtown area.” When asked about extending liquor permits to the right of way, Delin said “it’s possible that the City Council may consider this. [Such a decision] would be a balance between the interests of businesses and the interests of adjacent residential communities.” The city’s program comes at a time when Southern California is facing a spike in COVID-19 cases and the looming prospect of a second round of extended business closures.
Even businesses located on Hwy 101 in the heart of downtown face the real possibility of permanently closing their doors. “Shared Streets” might be the solution to keep businesses running. Over the holiday weekend, Encinitas Marine Safety Captain Larry Giles estimated around 40,000 people packed local beaches, more than in previous years. Lifeguards, as well as Encinitas’ City Manager Jennifer Campbell and Deputy Mayor Kelli Hinze handed out an estimated 4,000 masks to beachgoers this weekend. “People were pretty appreciative of the masks and the most part there were a lot of people down here wearing them. People are being a little more self-conscious about COVID and spacing themselves out now,” Giles said.
Auto theft suspect leads lengthy pursuit OCEANSIDE — An auto theft suspect led authorities on a nearly hourlong road chase from Oceanside to the Rainbow area July 8 in a stolen truck before a tire-flattening spike strip put an end to his bid to evade arrest. The pursuit began shortly after 10 a.m., when a helicopter crew with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department began following the silver Chevrolet pickup, which was the subject of a be-on-the-lookout alert, said Glen Twyman, a lieutenant with the regional law enforcement agency. The airborne crew and deputies in unmarked vehicles tailed the truck, which had been reported stolen in Riverside County, into San Marcos on Twin Oaks Valley Road and other streets, Twyman said. Marked sheriff’s patrol vehicles soon joined in the chase, which continued on into the unincorporated Hidden Meadows community near Escondido and eventually onto northbound Interstate 15. In the area of East Mission Road in Fallbrook, the truck ran over a spike strip laid out in its path by officers. Though at least one tire on the truck had been flattened by the device, the suspect kept fleeing for a short time before finally pulling to a stop on the freeway and surrendering just before 11 a.m., Twyman said. The arrestee’s name was not immediately available. — City News Service

Evidence is mounting of market solution to housing
Letters to the Editor Afraid of dialogue? I was saddened to read former Councilmember Muir’s commentary last week, criticizing the Encinitas City Council for proposing a dialogue on potential restructuring of our public safety enterprise. Let’s be honest — there might be better ways to provide some of the social services now imposed on the Sheriff’s Department. Why is Mr. Muir afraid
of having that conversation? I think most people recognize the need for well-trained, armed law enforcement personnel to respond to situations that call for such a response. But we also have domestic disputes, homeless people, mental illness, and other situations that might be better served, at least initially, by unarmed social
service professionals. I applaud the Council for its willingness to ask the hard questions, to exercise their responsibility for fiscal oversight, to ensure that our public safety funding provides the best return for the community. This is leadership. Lisa Shaffer Former Encinitas Deputy Mayor
Climate change Where does climate change fit during a pandemic, economic collapse and the Black Lives Matter movement? Lack of action on climate change will have significant adverse effect on all economies. Climate change impacts people of color and those living in poverty disproportionately, so it is a social justice issue. The
pandemic is teaching us lessons on how a global effort is needed to create policies to save lives. It is a wake-up call for action on climate change. It is all connected. Last week, the bi-partisan House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, unveiled a comprehensive plan “Solving the Climate Crisis: The Congressional Action Plan for a Clean
Energy Economy and a Healthy, Resilient, and Just America.” It details ambitious and actionable climate solutions that Congress should enact. We thank Congressman Mike Levin as a member of the committee and author of the report. Susan Kobara Carlsbad
Tackling the climate crisis As someone in my early 30s, I think the Climate Crisis will be the biggest challenge of my generation. I was incredibly happy to see the report from the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, “Solving the Climate Crisis: The Congressional Action Plan for a Clean Energy Economy and a Healthy, Resil-
ient, and Just America.” I’m thankful that Congress is taking steps to combat this issue, and even more glad that the committee is bipartisan as this is an issue affecting us all. Thank you to my own representative Mike Levin, and the other Democrats and Republicans on the committee.
I agree that putting a price on carbon is one of the best ways to tackle the climate crisis, as a carbon price “percolates through the entire economy, providing an incentive for all decision makers in the economy to look for ways to reduce emissions.” Jennifer Lappe Encinitas
Affordable housing In response to the article written by Dan Brendel, “Solana Beach, other cities well short of affordable housing goals.” I have sold real estate in Solana Beach, Del Mar and many other areas of North County San Diego for over 30 years. I have watched the value of our real estate climb. I think the State has no right to tell cities we must build affordable housing. The State does not control
our real estate prices. Supply, demand, location location location control our real estate prices. To try and force land owners (when there is hardly any vacant land left in our coastal communities) to build affordable housing, which means creating a density that does not fit or work in the neighborhoods they are trying to build some of these projects in, just ruins our neighborhoods, putting a
ew evidence arrives almost every day backing the concept of a market-based solution to California’s housing shortage, one that does not have to involve politicians at all. Of course, that offends politicos like San Francisco’s Democratic state Sen. Scott Wiener, who persists in the notion that high-density, high-rise apartments and condominiums are the answer. In a sense, he’s right. For the market-based solution that’s fast taking shape does involve high rises and high density — just not in new buildings. Rather, housing will almost certainly occupy space now leased by insurance companies, law firms, venture capitalists, bank headquarters — almost every kind of white collar business. Lease holders who once clamored for more space in office towers rising above areas like Century City in Los Angeles, downtown San Diego and San Francisco’s financial district are now looking for ways to escape the commitments they still have. “For lease” signs proliferate in urban areas. Some tenants refuse to pay rent, having sent their workforces home to work safely and virtually at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. They’re not being evicted yet, because of state emergency rules allowing tenants huge leeway on delaying payments during the health crisis. But if they don’t either pay up when the rent delays expire or work out deferred payment deals with their landlords, they will pretty soon find themselves ousted. They will leave gigantic amounts of current office space empty. It’s not that white collar business-
california focus thomas d. elias es won’t need office space; merely that they will need much less. Companies like Facebook and Twitter have told their workers to keep operating from home as long as they like. Others are asking workers to come in one or two days per week. As California reopened haltingly after the initial crisis phase of the pandemic, when unusual caution was taken to prevent hospital overloads that could have cost many lives, it became clear vast numbers of workers will opt to stay home most of the time. In many cases, that’s not mere preference, but necessity. State guidelines for reopening public schools, for example, create a need for continued virtual commuting. By staggering start and stop times, reducing class sizes and using a mix of in-person and online instruction, the schools are telling millions of working parents they’ll have to flex their work hours. Some like it that way. This reality is visible in recent home pricing figures from San Francisco and some of its suburbs. Demand for housing is up in Marin, Napa, Santa Cruz and Monterey counties, but down in San Francisco itself. One result is that a house which sold for $1.89 million 15 months ago in the city’s Sunset District is now listed on the Zillow real estate site at $1.78 million — down $101,000. At the same time, real-

tors in suburban counties are seeing steady demand. They report many would-be buyers are the same people who long worked in office towers, but lately operate from home. As their bosses tell them they can keep doing this, some are seeking more spacious quarters and a less urban environment. In short, many want the very urban sprawl that’s anathema to Wiener, who has sponsored bill after bill aimed at bringing density to the same areas so attractive right now to folks leaving dense neighborhoods. The same thing is happening in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas, where prices in outlying areas are rising, while real estate near the urban cores remains stable. The next phase figures to see entire floors of highrise buildings go vacant, and then remain empty for significant periods. Once building owners realize that new lessees won’t be forthcoming in droves, they’ll opt for other ways to monetize their buildings: converting much of the empty floor space to condos and apartments. These will likely come in all sizes and price levels, from large ocean-and mountain-view units to small apartments on the lower floors. Some buildings will have mixed use, with stores on the ground floor and other levels shared by offices and dwelling units. Zoning changes are inevitable. That’s how market forces will solve the housing shortage, creating vast numbers of units within the next five years, many of them very affordable.

ahead of the holiday weekend. San Diego County was the final county in Southern California to be placed on the state’s monitoring list. Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer, said Monday that more bad news is likely coming. “Deaths lag behind hospitalizations, which lag behind cases,” she said, comparing the pattern to what health officials see with seasonal influenza. San Diego County health officials reported 1,030 positive COVID-19 cases over the weekend. On Friday, 468 new cases were reported and another 562 were reported Saturday. Health officials reported 274 new cases Monday, the fewest reported since June 22. As of Tuesday, cases requiring hospitalization totaled 1,923 or 10.9% of cases and hospitalized cases admitted to an intensive care unit totaled 517 or 2.9% of cases.

REGION — San Diego County health officials reported a new one-day high of 578 positive COVID-19 cases and 12 deaths on Tuesday as indoor operations have been halted in various businesses throughout the region. The San Diego County COVID-19 case total is nearing the 18,000 mark and deaths from the virus have eclipsed 400. County health officials reported 264 new COVID-19 cases and seven additional deaths on Wednesday, raising the county’s totals to 17,842 cases and 406 deaths. Of the 7,607 tests reported Wednesday, 3% returned positive. A total of 402,494 tests have been completed in the county, along with 20,691 contact tracing investigations. Despite the lower numbers, other signs show the pandemic is far from easing. A new daily high of 38 COVID-19 positive patients were hospitalized in Wednesday’s data, and about 136 of every 100,000 San Diegans are testing positive for the illness, well above the state’s criterion of 100 per 100,000. Total COVID-19 hospitalizations have inched up over the last several weeks, said Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer. “The pandemic is not over,” she said. “The disease is still widespread in our community, as evidenced by the rising cases.’’ Additionally, five new community-based outbreaks were reported Wednesday — in a bar, gym, daycare center, grocery store and health

North County uses different models of police accountability By Dan Brendel
REGION — Law enforcement operates by two models — one political, the other bureaucratic — which perform largely parallel functions, but differ in how they’re accountable to their constituencies. The sheriff is a constitutionally mandated county office elected by voters. City police departments, led by appointed police chiefs, are optional parts of municipal administrations. Nine cities countywide, including most in North County — San Marcos, Vista, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar — contract with San Diego County Sheriff William Gore’s department for law enforcement services. “In these cities the Sheriff’s Department serves as their police department, providing a full range of law enforcement services including patrol, traffic and investigative services,” according to the sheriff’s website. The sher-
iff also operates countywide detention centers and provides security for the San Diego Superior Court. Three North County cities — Oceanside, Carlsbad and Escondido — choose to operate their own police departments. Elected officials don’t directly oversee these departments. Instead, police chiefs fall under city managers, who are municipal chief executives and also unelected. Oceanside, for example, expressly prohibits direct political oversight of city employees. According to its “Non-Interference in Administrative Affairs” policy, the city council shall not “deal with any administrative officer … except through the city manager”; “dictate, suggest or interfere with appointments, promotions, compensations, disciplinary actions, contracts, requisitions, purchases or other administrative recommendations or actions of the
city manager … or of department heads under the city manager”; or “attempt to influence or coerce the city manager … in the making of any appointment to, or removal from, any city office or employment”. The Coast News found only one California municipality — the City of Santa Clara — that has its own police department independent from the county sheriff, but also elects its police chief. The state legislature amended the city’s charter in 1953, enabling Santa Clara to elect its police chiefs to four-year terms. Having an independent police department allows the city manager to hire the police chief based on expertise, not votes, Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss said in a June 22 interview. The appointment system also affords flexibility, in that the city can redeploy police resources without having to negotiate first with the sheriff, he
said. “A lot of folks blur the line between the role and authority of the council and that of the city manager,” Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara said in a June 22 email. “The council provides policy guidance. The city manager turns that guidance into operational execution. … The city manager is the operational oversight for the Chief of Police. “That is not to say the council lives in the dark. … But a city employee, to include a police officer, who fails to meet the standard of conduct is disciplined, fired, etc. by the Chief of Police or [applicable] department head. “We do receive periodic reports [from the police department] and we are briefed on issues that rise to the level of the council,” he said. “[Our police are] adding more self-scrutiny knowing the importance this incident [the May 25 killing of George Floyd in
Minneapolis] represents.” The Oceanside Police Department also handles discipline internally. Last month, City Councilwoman Esther Sanchez told The Coast News she requested information on all complaints against officers over the past 20 years. The department responded, but supplied insufficient “context,” so she’s now waiting on supplemental information, she said July 6. In general, “urban police departments were created not to parallel sheriff functions but to address a crisis in public order,” Donald Dripps, a University of San Diego law professor, said in a June 24 email. “In England and the early years of the U.S., public order was maintained by constables, posses and … justices of the peace. Urbanization made this system intolerably lax. … The uniformed, 24/7 patrol presence was the response.” Today, “there is a gen-
eral effort to insulate the police from partisan politics, not so much because policing is apolitical (we all know it isn't) but because we don't want officers hired and fired based on party affiliations and personal connections,” he said. “Some less-densely populated areas, all over the country, get by without a municipal force; if you ring 911 the dispatcher's assets are sheriff's deputies or highway patrol. “But … wherever you got even modest cities, they felt the need for round-theclock proactive patrol and rapid response. The rural areas understandably are not enthusiastic about paying for a public function they don't use; I expect that's a big part of the division of labor [between sheriffs and police].” Neither the Carlsbad City Council nor the police departments from Oceanside, Carlsbad or Escondido responded to a request for comment.
San Diego Zoo & Safari Park to remain open Supervisors decline to appeal ruling on Climate Action Plan
By Tigist Layne
REGION — San Diego County officials ordered the shutdown of indoor operations for a number of businesses starting Tuesday, including restaurants, bars, movie theaters, museums and zoos. The San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park will remain open, however, saying that the order applies to indoor zoos, not outdoor ones. The move comes after California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday that San Diego County was officially added to California’s “monitoring list,” joining 22 other counties in the state who are on the list. Newsom said at his Monday news conference that he expected local health officials in each of the newly added counties to issue an order enacting the measures, which are expected to remain in effect for at least three weeks. San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido reopened to the public on June 20 after a three-month shutdown due to COVID-19. Rick Schwartz, spokesperson and ambassador for the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park, told The Coast News that they will remain open as the order technically doesn’t apply to them. “We try to look at every option. If we have to close

again, well then it happens, we’ll be ready,” Schwartz said. “As a citizen of this state and this country, we can look around us and recognize that what was happening last week is different than this week, and to try and assume we don’t need to prepare for all options would be a bad idea.” The Zoo and Safari Park have implemented safety measures for guests including health screening areas, social distancing markings, face mask requirements, an online ticket system and reduced capacity. Both are now operating at below 50% of normal capacity — no more than 5,000 people at the Zoo or 3,000 at the Safari Park at
a given time. Furthermore, the Zoo has suspended bus tours and the Safari Park has suspended tram tours to maintain social distancing. Schwartz added that plexiglass has been installed to serve as a barrier between the animals and the guests because some species can possibly receive a version of the coronavirus. During the closures, the Zoo and the Safari Park kept essential staff to take care of the animals and the plants, some of which are endangered species. Others were furloughed a few weeks into the closures, but Schwartz said they have and are continuing to bring back all furloughed employees.
“When we were still closed, the support we got from the community was amazing. Our member base and the community at large started reaching out to us to check in and make sure everything was OK,” Schwartz said. “People were donating money to us in a time where many of them were getting furloughed. That means so much to us and it speaks wonderfully to our community.” Schwartz added that he’s glad that the community can see the animals once again, but that it must be done safely and responsibly if they want it to continue. Those planning to visit the Zoo or Safari Park are advised to visit sandiegozoo.org/reopen beforehand.
REGION — The Board of Supervisors decided against appealing acourt ruling that found San Diego County's Climate Action Plan to be insufficient, it was announced July 8. On June 12, the 4th District Court of Appeal in San Diego also found that reliance on carbon offsets was not legal, and shouldn't be used as a mechanism to allow general plan amendments to move forward. Carbon offsets are reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. The board's unanimous vote followed a Tuesday closed session on the lawsuit, according to Supervisor Nathan Fletcher's office. In a January 2019 closed session, supervisors voted to appeal the lawsuit that was filed in 2018 by several environmental groups, including the Center for Biological Diversity, Climate Action Campaign and the Sierra Club. In December 2018, San Diego Superior Court Judge Timothy B. Taylor ruled the county's climate plan and offset program lacked oversight and also violated the 2011 general plan update. Fletcher, a member of the state Air Resources Board, said in a statement
Wednesday that it was “past time that our county accept the court's repeated guidance on the law and take seriously our obligation to meaningfully address environmental concerns.” “We must rethink our approach to housing development by focusing our efforts on infill development near transit to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower vehicle miles traveled, which will improve air quality and prevent the risks of building in fire zones,” he said. Other supervisors contacted were unavailable for comment or declined to comment on the closed session matter. John Buse, senior counsel at the Center for Biological Diversity, said his group was very happy with the board's decision. “It was throwing good money after bad to pursue something the county has fought for (years) now,” Buse said. “It's a prudent decision from a government perspective. The goal is not to halt the Climate Action Plan but to get a better one.” Environmental groups have taken issue with the county's Climate Action Plan for nearly a decade. That opposition has resulted in the county spending nearly $1 million in legal fees.

Meet Oceanside’s District 3 candidates By Samantha Nelson
OCEANSIDE — The campaigning is underway for Oceanside City Council’s new third and fourth district candidates. In 2017, the council adopted a resolution changing council elections from at-large to requiring members to live in the district where they seek election. Only the mayor’s seat will remain at-large. Four districts were established. Elections for Districts 1 and 2 were held in 2018 and filled by incumbent Councilmember Esther Sanchez for District 1 and then-newcomer Christopher Rodriguez for District 2. The Coast News previously published an article that heard from candidates for District 4. Now, it’s District 3 candidates’ turns. District 3 is the southernmost district, covering neighborhoods including South Oceanside, commonly known as “South O,” and Fire Mountain. It is also home to MiraCosta College and the El Camino Country Club.
If elected, Batchelor would also like to address the misappropriation of government funds in the city. He noted the easternmost part of District 3 is “virtually ignored when it comes to the appropriation of money.” “It’s mostly families with low and moderate incomes in that part of the city, and nobody represents them,” Batchelor said. Batchelor said he is a good choice for the seat because he is “beholden to nobody.” “I can easily self-fund my campaign and my only agenda for running for District 3 is love,” he said.
Ryan Keim Shari Mackin
Bill Batchelor Candidate Bill Batchelor has been a resident of Oceanside for 30 years and currently lives in South O. Batchelor went as far as to quit his line of work to run for the council seat. The candidate spent many years working in the city’s vacation rental industry, but now he is seeking the council seat to help stop vacation rentals from taking over residential areas. “My expertise was in vacation rentals so I am more qualified than anyone and know what to do to curb this beast,” Batchelor said. Batchelor understands that vacation rentals have always had a presence in Oceanside given its status as a tourist destination. He is not completely opposed to vacation rentals and understands many residents do it as a means to help pay their mortgages, but he doesn’t want any vacation rentals without the owner living on site east of Coast Highway. According to Batchelor, the vacation rental industry is growing at an exponentially high rate. He fears its growth will begin to take over residential areas, thus removing homes from the housing stock and resulting in fewer children going to neighborhood schools.
Mackin added there are “no teeth” in the city’s vacation rental policy. “There has to be protection for residents and that is just not happening,” she said. Mackin described her neighborhood of South O as having an “eclectic, laid back beachy feel,” but added that character as well as the character of Oceanside is disappearing. “We’ve lost so much character with all that massive stuff being built downtown,” Mackin said. “What’s left needs to be honored.”
Shari Mackin previously served on Council in 2005 and 2006, spending some of that time as deputy mayor. Mackin has lived in Oceanside for 40 years and also lives in South O. “I’ve always been an advocate for neighborhoods and the people of Oceanside,” Mackin said. Mackin likes to stay busy and considers herself a doer. “I see problems and I see what can be done for a solution, and I get people to work together,” Mackin said. The city previously had issues with clearing the San Luis Rey River, but Mackin helped changed that through connections with regional policymakers. Now, the river is cleared every year. Mackin knows the city’s Local Coast Program well. That knowledge came in handy when she found a hidden beach access in South Oceanside that was missing from the records. She said the access is between Cassidy Street and St. Malo Beach. “It took a lot to open it — there was this beautiful beach not shared and nobody had access, and now they do,” she said. “It makes me feel to drive by and know that people have access to the beach.” Mackin believes the current Council puts developers before city residents, which she said is causing residents to lose their neighborhoods to short term vacation rentals. “I understand the value of beach access but you can’t put a full-fledged hotel that can accommodate 40 people in a house next to someone who lives there and not have rules followed,” Mackin said.
City Council unanimously appointed Ryan Keim to fill a vacant council seat in early 2019. Now he is running in an election to keep his seat. Keim grew up in Oceanside. After he graduated with a political science degree from California State University San Marcos, he returned to Oceanside as a police officer. Keim spent 10 years working as a police officer for the Oceanside Police Department until an injury forced him to retire. After that, Keim worked as a public information officer for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Keim’s history with the police and sheriff’s departments as well as his time on the Police and Fire Commission and on City Council has made him comfortable working in management positions and working with others to solves problems in the city. “It’s challenging but it is the most fun job when you actually get to solve some of these problems,” Keim said. “It can be the opposite if you don’t because you let down the people you care about, and that’s the hardest part.” Keim said he doesn’t have political ambitions to go beyond anywhere other than Oceanside, adding that local politics often get overlooked. Though it didn’t start out this way, the COVID-19 pandemic has become Keim’s top priority for his campaign. “Everything else has taken a backseat to that,” he said. “It’s not as though we’re not working on other issues, but we have to get through this.” Keim said Oceanside has led the county in its response to COVID-19, particularly with how the city
has helped its businesses and residents and how businesses and residents have helped each other. He noted the city’s program with the Oceanside Kitchen Collaborative (OKC), which helped local restaurants by purchasing their excess food to be made in the OKC kitchen and then sent out to the city’s most vulnerable populations. The city recently renewed funding for the OKC program through July. Keim said that Oceanside was in the best position it has ever been in at the beginning of 2020, with improved quality of life, far less violent crime, more job opportunities, more restaurants and more opportunities for children than ever before. Still, besides addressing the challenges associated with COVID-19, Keim acknowledged the city still has some ways to go with further improving the city’s quality of life for its residents. He noted drug use, property crime and homelessness are some of Oceanside’s lingering issues. Keim there are two ways to deal with these types of issues. The city needs to practice compassion and provide access to mental health and substance abuse treatment, but it also can’t ignore crimes being committed. Keim also said the Council needs to have a certain level of decorum and respect for others. “Whether we agree or disagree it is imperative that we treat each other with respect, treat staff with respect, and treat the citizens with respect,” he said. He also wants to see the Council improve its transparency. Keim acknowledged that his appointment process drew valid criticism from many residents because it wasn’t done as transparently as it could have been, and that was because the Council didn’t have a policy on appointments. Keim said he spent several months writing up TURN TO DISITRCT 3 ON A14

running for mayor. Councilmember Esther Sanchez and Deputy Mayor Jack Feller are also running. Rodriguez was first elected to Council as the District 2 representative in late 2018. The councilmember is confident in the policies he has helped to set in that amount of time. “The policies I’ve ushered in over the past 24 months have set Oceanside on a great path physically and financially,” Rodriguez said. That list of policies, according to Rodriguez, includes the city’s new short-term vacation rental policy, a homeless work program, a more streamlined approach to business and development services, low-income housing and down payment assistance opportunities, tax credit incentives for businesses that hire locals and micro-loan funding for businesses struggling from COVID-19. Since March, Rodriguez has been adamant about getting Oceanside on track to economic recovery from COVID-19 impacts. Rodriguez forfeited his salary at the end of March as a means to show solidarity with city businesses and residents who aren’t making any income or making less than they were before the pandemic started. He pledged to do it again as mayor until the following conditions are met: city unemployment drops below 4%, every homeless veteran in Oceanside is off the street, and the city is declared “the safest and most business-friendly” city in Southern California.

The Oceanside mayor is paid $36,695.04 annually and councilmembers are paid $33,993 annually. Outside of his work as a public servant, Rodriguez is a real estate agent. Recently an article published in The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that at least two Superior Court lawsuits have been filed against Rodriguez in the last two years alleging that he still owed former partners money. John R. Hetzler filed a lawsuit on May 27 alleging Rodriguez still him money for a house flip project in Murrieta. Hetzler loaned Rodriguez $100,000 at 12% interest in 2018 to be repaid in six months. When that didn’t happen, Rodriguez told Hetzler he wasn’t going to sell the property because of its insufficient equity to cover the loan. The two worked out an agreement for Hetzler to buy the property and Rodriguez agreed to pay $20,000 of the principal loan. Rodriguez was also going to repay the remaining $80,000 by refinancing a house he owned in Fallbrook, but he ended up not using any of the refinance loan money to repay Hetzler according to the lawsuit document. Hetzler told the UT that he recently received a “good faith check” from Rodriguez with a promise to pay the debt by the end of the year. Rodriguez told The Coast News that Hetzler is withdrawing the lawsuit. He also said the lawsuits mentioned in the UT article are “frivolous and/or irrelevant.” “Dr. Hetzler and I have partnered on past investments and we both have had great success working together,” Rodriguez said.

Palomar Medical opens mental health crisis unit By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — Palomar Medical Center in Escondido announced the opening of its new mental health crisis stabilization unit (CSU), the first of its kind in San Diego County. The new two-story, 6,000-square-foot building can hold up to 16 patients and will serve as a temporary refuge for people needing immediate care for a psychiatric crisis. Patients who qualify to enter the short-term facility can stay up to 24 hours before being discharged home or into the next level of care. Crisis stabilization is not comprehensive medical care, but a direct and quick approach to behavioral challenges. The CSU was created in collaboration with the county’s Behavioral Health Services in response to an increase in behavioral health patients in emergen-
cy departments countywide and in an ongoing effort by the county to invest in services that are more accessible to residents. Don Myers, district director at Palomar Health’s Center for Behavioral Health, told The Coast News that, before this new facility, behavioral health patients who needed crisis stabilization would visit the emergency department in Escondido then would have to be transported to Palomar’s previous downtown location. “Because it’s located really close to the emergency department, this will really help with timely access to care. It will cut the access to care by hours,” Myers said. Myers said that the facility will be available to underserved members of the community, and the county will reimburse Palomar for those patients’ care.
The county also helped pay for a portion of the building itself. “This new facility not only meets the needs of our growing community, it also fulfills a promise Palomar Health has made to take care of the most vulnerable residents in our community,” Palomar Health President and CEO Diane Hansen said in a statement. The unit will be staffed with psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychiatric nurses, psychiatrists, crisis stabilization specialists and peer support specialists. “Peer support special-
ists are people who have lived experiences, so they have a mental illness that they’re in recovery from,” Myers said. “It’s a great addition to our clinical team because they can talk to people in crisis in a way that those of us who don’t have a mental illness can’t. Myers added that they plan to hire more staff once all processes are in place and as demand grows. The completed facility had been in the works since 2016. Up next, says Myers, is a 70-bed psychiatric hospital on the Escondido campus.

State water department grants over $15M to San Diego projects By City News Service
REGION — The California Department of Water Resources awarded more than $15 million in grant funds for several water projects in San Diego County, officials announced July 8. The seven projects range from water recycling and reuse to water conservation and from as far south as National City up to Oceanside and Fallbrook. The following projects will receive funding from the state: — Paradise Valley Creek water quality and community enhancement, National City, flood damage reduction, $3,681,056; — Pure Water Oceanside, Oceanside, groundwater, $3,115,000; — North County recycled water project, San Elijo Joint Powers Authority, recycled water, $2,820,000; — North City Pure Water facility influent pump station and conveyance pipeline, San Diego, recycled water, $1,477,600; — 2020 regional water-use efficiency programs, San Diego County, water conservation, $1,440,000; — San Elijo stormwater capture and reuse, San Elijo Joint Powers Authority, recycled water, $1,195,000; — Lower Santa Margarita River indirect potable reuse pilot project, Fallbrook, recycled water, $687,500. In addition, the grant from the Department of
Water Resources allocates $920,180 to the San Diego County Water Authority to administer the funds. “These grants will provide much-needed funding for important local water supply projects and water-use efficiency measures, along with a disadvantaged community project in National City,” water authority Board Chair Jim Madaffer said. “Regional collaboration by the water authority and a host of partners makes these projects possible. Once again, this shows how San Diego County is stronger together.” The authority submitted the funding request on behalf of the San Diego Integrated Regional Water Management Program, which began in 2005 as an effort by water agencies, wastewater agencies, stormwater and flood managers, watershed groups and other stakeholders to improve water resources planning in the region. The statewide water management program is supported by bonds from the California Department of Water Resources to fund competitive grants for projects that improve water resources management. Since 2008, the San Diego region has secured more than $111 million in funds for 74 high-priority water management projects through the regional water management process.

Pure Project Carlsbad tap room enjoys successful opening By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Opening a brewery and tasting room in the era of COVID-19 is a challenge. It’s also what’s facing the latest business to enter the Carlsbad beer scene, as Pure Project opened for business on July 3. The popular brewery, which has locations in Miramar and Bankers Hill, pivoted to a soft opening July 3 after Gov. Gavin Newsom’s health order last week closed bars for indoor service. Pure Project, though, has applied to the city of Carlsbad for a permit to put about 20 tables on its sidewalk and private parking spaces, according to Robby Baker, director of operations for Pure. The city launched the temporary program in early June 3 to help restaurants and bars expand their ca-

pacity due to health orders mandating social distancing policies. “It all depends these dine-in restrictions are applied to us,” Baker said. “We do have our restrictions and have to have a food component and get that ball roll-
ing. Once we get that, we will function at that speed.” While waiting for final approvals from the city regarding its outside seating and adding foodservice through a food truck or something similar, the brewery is selling to-go
beers, sour, and kombucha, to name a few. Even though Pure’s inside operations have been put on hold, Baker said there was a line wrapped around the building on opening day. Their location, he added, is in a premier spot in
the city, adjacent to Handles and Shorehouse Kitchen on State Street across from New Village Arts. It’s been nearly two years since Pure Project submitted its application to the city to renovate the empty space. And since then, the site has seen the addition of the popular ice cream shop and restaurant, adding to State Street’s vibrant atmosphere. “Handles moving in was a big thing … they get a lot of foot traffic,” Baker said. “You got all the components (of State Street) and once we get back to somewhat normalcy, we’re really stoked about the possibilities.” The concept, meanwhile, is an upscale rustic look featuring an aesthetic in line with the Village with a greenwood accent wall piece with wood tables
and a bar to seat at least 12, when it’s open. There is a small patio for outdoor seating, which Pure can still use with the new health orders. Another aspect of the taproom is staying true to its commitment to sustainability. Instead of using plastic ring binders to hold four- and six-packs, they use cardboard holders, and another made from used grain during the brewing process, said Lily Howard, Pure’s marketing coordinator. Also, the beer is brewed from as many organic, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients, she added. They also use wine bottles for some of their sours and popular Tyrannosaurus Rex-themed seasonal beers, such as Chocosaurus Rex. “That’s what we are kind of known for, our organic ingredients,” Baker said.

REGION — An uptick in DUI arrest rates and excessive speeding citations occurred around San Diego County during March and April, even as fewer drivers were on the roadways due to stay-at-home orders amid the COVID-19 pandemic. San Diego police, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol all had moderate increases in their DUI arrest rates in March and April compared to the same two months in 2019, 2018 and 2017, according to an analysis of data requested from those agencies. SDPD arrested an average of three DUI drivers for every 100 traffic infractions in those two months the previous three years, but saw that rate jump to 4.71 during March and April this year. The California Highway Patrol logged a similar rise in DUI apprehensions, with the rate increasing from about six DUI arrests for every 100 infractions the three previous years to 7.66 this year. The Sheriff’s Department saw the most dramatic rise. It had a rate of about six DUI arrests for every 100 infractions during the two-month span in 2019, 2018 and 2017, rising to 11.79 DUI arrests for every 100 infractions this year. San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan said she has also noticed a troubling new trend involving DUIs this year. In a six-week span from May 4 to June 17, there were seven deaths from DUI-related crashes in the county, she said. “I actually don't recall a time that we've had that many in a short period of time,” Stephan said. “So that’s of a lot of concern.” From January through April, the county recorded five DUI-related deaths.

Supports local non-profit organizations ENCINITAS — Encinitas Charities Consulting Group (ECCG) is behind an annual fundraising event called the Summer Science & Sports Academy benefiting the community in three ways: engaging Kindergarteners through 8th Graders in science and sports education, providing access to high quality enrichment education to low-income households and offering cash-strapped non-profit organizations a new avenue for earning income. The Summer Science & Sports Academy will take place from July 13 - 31, 2020. Each week will contain unique content such that a student could attend all three weeks without repeating any material. Enrolling in the Academy means students will get 15 hours of pre-recorded STEM and sports content delivered to their inbox. They have the option to complete labs and activities that day or whenever their schedule allows. Experts will be available throughout the week for live sessions to discuss the day’s activities and answer questions. Scholarships will be awarded to Title 1 students who qualify for free or reduced lunch programs at school. These households will
be able to access all three weeks of Academy content at no charge. ECCG decided to create a program combining science and sports to provide a well-rounded camp-style experience for students.

STEM education enrichment programs lead to better academic outcomes for both advanced students and those who have shown less interest in science and related subjects. Non-profit organizations will benefit by partnering with ECCG to spread the word about the Academy. Participating charities are known as Beneficiary Partners. Tickets for each week cost $150 or $400 for all three weeks. Beneficiary Partners keep 80% of their ticket sales and 90% of sponsorship
amounts they bring in; the fundraising opportunity for each charity is unlimited and there is no minimum amount Partners have to raise. Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association, Encinitas Chamber of Commerce, Encinitas Educational Foundation, Coast Digital, Patrons of Encinitas Parks, Rancho Coastal Humane Society, San Diego Botanic Garden, San Diego LabRats, Studio ACE and The San Dieguito Heritage Museum have confirmed their participation as Beneficiary Partners. “The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all of us and our local non-profits are being hit especially hard since support needed from them is at an all-time high while the economic impact of this virus has caused a dramatic drop in charitable giving. Let’s all come together to support families in need and the charities that support the most vulnerable in our community,” said Jim Merrill, Executive Director of ECCG. Enrollment is now open at sdlabrats.org/science-sports-academy. Charitable organizations interested in partnering with ECCG should visit sdlabrats.org/ beneficiary-partners.

Rock Church distributes food, supplies By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — In response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Rock Church, in collaboration with the Rock’s Provision Group, held a community food, diaper and supplies distribution for hundreds of families at its San Marcos campus. Roughly 200 residents made their way to the free event on July 2, one of several distributions that will be the first and third Thursdays of every month. The distributions began on April 3, each one serving an average of 177 residents and allowing more than 466 households to receive groceries and other supplies. The food is donated by a variety of local businesses and grocery stores, including North County Food Bank, Einstein Bagels
in Oceanside and WinCo Foods San Marcos. Becky Aniversario, a pastor at Rock Church San Marcos and a staff member at the distribution, told The Coast News that a local farm had even donated to the cause. “They heard about what we were doing and because they had so much extra product they decided to help out rather than waste it,” Aniversario said. “It ended up being more than enough food.” Staff and volunteers at the event made sure social distancing measures were in place while also helping families receive all of the supplies they needed. After picking up supplies, many of the residents prayed with their families or in small groups in the church’s parking lot before heading home.
“This is my second time coming to a distribution,” said Angelina, a single mother of two young kids. “It’s something that has really helped my family, and I’m just so thankful for that.” Also volunteering at the event were two sheriff’s deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff’s San Marcos Station who bagged and distributed food to the families. The entire staff then gathered around them and prayed for them as the distribution wrapped up. The Provision Group was started by Rock Church San Marcos attendee Ken Eick. The ministry launched its first food distribution last Oct. 3 and has served thousands of families since then. The next distribution will be July 16 at Rock Church San Marcos.

Restaurants face myriad difficulties in the age of COVID-19 By Caitlin Steinberg
ENCINITAS — Five months into the COVID-19 pandemic, Encinitas businesses are increasingly facing closure, struggling to protect employees from the virus, grappling with maskless customers and navigating county health regulations. Shouldered with the additional responsibility of policing their own customers’ mask-usage, many businesses (specifically food and beverage industry) operate in fear of a COVID-19 outbreak among staff and the onslaught of hard decisions that follow. Kris Buchanan, owner of the restaurant GoodOnYa and vice president of Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association, spoke to the Coast News about mounting challenges facing business owners in the age of coronavirus. “We could all get back to normal life if we did one thing and that is pull your mask up,” Buchanan said. “Just pull it up when you’re within six feet of someone. Is that so much to ask so we can get our economy and lives back together?” On multiple occasions, GoodOnYa has experienced issues with confrontational customers demanding service but refusing to wear a protective face covering, resorting to verbal abuse and threats towards employees, according to Buchanan. Buchanan recalled a

local lawyer threatened to sue the organic eatery for violations of the American Disabilities Act, claiming to have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, allegedly restricting his ability to use a mask. “If you truly have (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) during a pandemic, should you even be outside, let alone in a busy restaurant without a mask?” asked Buchanan. Currently, face coverings are required as part of county’s public health or-
der, however, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, zero citations have been issued in Encinitas, Solana Beach or Del Mar. According to Lt. John Boyce of the Sheriff’s North Coastal Division, law enforcement’s current role with regard to facial coverings is limited to “educating the public and gaining compliance.” “We have a business to run and bills to pay, schedules to make and food to order,” Buchanan said. “We
don’t have time to police customers. People need to take individual responsibility,” “They want to get back to normal, but they don’t want to do what it takes to get there.” Paula Vrakas, owner of the restaurant The Roxy, says mask compliance has slowly improved since re-opening, though not drastically. “Memorial Day weekend was a nightmare to be honest,” Vrakas said. “The sheer amount of policing of masks, how to teach our
customers the rules and keeping them under control was hard on our staff.” For both restaurant owners, their problems aren’t limited to social distancing and mask compliance. In the last two weeks, both restaurants had employees test positive for COVID-19. After learning of the diagnosis, both restaurants closed their doors, publicly announced the positive COVID-19 test, provided testing for all employees and conducted a deep cleaning of their establishments. “It was a hard decision to immediately close,” Vrakas said. “We didn’t have to, but we did. We didn’t feel it was responsible as a business in this climate to continue having our staff present without receiving their COVID test results yet.” Buchanan also quickly closed the restaurant, basing her decision on kindness and respect for the community. But she noted that not all businesses have followed the same protocols. “We let our customers know because if they care for any elderly or small children and came in during the period the employee was working, they may want to get tested,” Buchanan said. “But I know for a fact that there are businesses in Encinitas that have had COVID positive employees and they haven’t closed
down or let the public know because they’re afraid of being publicly shamed,” Buchanan said. “Technically they don’t need to. It’s legal.”
To disclose or not to disclose? In San Diego County, health regulations do not require businesses, including restaurants, to inform the public or shut their doors if an employee tests positive for COVID-19. In an email sent to businesses on July 2, the county’s Department of Environmental Health laid out four recommendations for businesses should an employee contract COVID-19. Businesses are instructed to notify the DEH, “selfclose” for any number of hours to conduct a deep disinfection, determine if any staff was in close contact with the infected employee, and review the facility’s COVID protocol with staff and ensure all precautions are being followed. Speaking to the Coast News, Donna Durckel, a communications officer with the county’s Land Use & Environment Group, attempted to clarify the matter. “While [fully] closing down is not a requirement, it is recommended to enable a facility to more easily conduct an additional disinfecTURN TO RESTAURANTS ON A15

COVID-19 worsens chronic deficits for Oceanside schools By Dan Brendel
OCEANSIDE — In its new budget, approved June 23, Oceanside Unified School District forecasted needing to cut an additional 5% of expenditures in order to maintain operating reserves, with cuts deepening to 35% after two years. North County districts, which all recently adopted their annual budgets, took a generally dim view of their fiscal futures, anticipating shortfalls across the board. Coastal districts in Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar planned to keep deficit spending level at roughly 5% or less, measured by change in fund balance as a proportion of expenditures. But four districts in Oceanside, San Marcos, Vista and Escondido projected steady downward slides. Nosing past San Marcos Unified, Oceanside Unified has the grimmest outlook, projecting a 17.3% deficit in FY 2022-23. These four North County districts together educate more than 83,000 students, according to Ed-Data, an online education data warehouse. School officials say the situation isn’t so dire as all this red ink suggests. Districts drafted their budgets assuming huge coronavirus-induced funding cuts from the state, which a deal last week between the governor and state legislature since averted.
Chart by Dan Brendel
“Districts now have 45 days to revise their adopted budget. This revision will show the deficits eliminated or greatly reduced,” Mike Simonson, chief business official for the San Diego County Office of Education, said in a June 26 email. Due to the uncertainty from COVID-19, “one simply cannot lend much credence to those out-year [forecasted] numbers,” Mike Blessing, Oceanside Unified’s school board president, said
in a June 24 email. “But it is an exercise that the state and the county board of education makes us go through every year. … We are on solid ground going forward for the coming fiscal school year, all things considered.” Though Oceanside Unified, along with Vista Unified and San Marcos Unified, faced structural deficits before COVID-19, according to 2018 and 2019 reports from the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assis-
tance Team (FCMAT), a state agency. For Oceanside, FCMAT identified several underlying internal problems, especially related to enrollment, which largely determines districts’ funding. These problems included not reducing staffing in tandem with falling enrollment, maintaining more facilities than the shrinking student population requires, and inaccurately budgeting for staff.
Oceanside’s average daily attendance fell 13% over the last 10 years, according to Ed-Data. “Like many districts in California, we are deficit spending due to a number of reasons,” namely, pension and healthcare costs, Oceanside Unified spokesman Matthew Jennings said in a June 29 email. Oceanside’s cost containment measures include evaluating whether to refill positions opened due to retirement or attrition, consolidating alternative education programs at one location, and an ongoing process of determining how best to unload surplus properties, he said. While shrinking districts can reduce staffing to some extent, ultimately fixed costs can’t decline in direct proportion to the number of students, said Mike Simonson, county education office deputy superintendent, in a June 29 interview. State funding imbalances play a bigger role in Oceanside and other districts’ financial straits. Simonson described California’s education funding system this way: First, the state assigns each school district a funding target, based mostly on the student population. Second, toward meeting that target, each district gets a share of countywide property tax revenues, according to a state-prescribed
formula. Finally, for most districts, state aid makes up the difference. But some wealthier districts, including in North County coastal cities, meet or even exceed their targets just through their share of property taxes. “That creates … a massive discrepancy,” Simonson said. “Property tax is a much more stable funding source than what makes up the majority of state funding, which is personal income tax. We’re seeing right now with the coronavirus just how big of swing that can be.” Moreover, while the state doesn’t increase aid in tandem with inflation, he says rising property taxes help revenues keep pace with expenditure growth in districts that don’t require state aid. “Declining enrollment, the rising cost of special education, and the increased contributions to pensions — those three things over the last 10 years really have proven to be too much for many of our state-funded districts to handle without making reductions,” he said. Other than Blessing, Oceanside’s school board didn’t respond to a request for comment. Nor did San Diego County Board of Education Trustees Paulette Donnellon and Rick Shea, whose trustee areas include North County’s school districts.

According to Newman, she has fought for patient’s rights to safe access to cannabis-based medications. “Oceanside residents voted overwhelmingly in favor of safe access to cannabis-based medications with the passage of Prop 64 in 2016,” Newman states on her website. “Still, our city council has not gotten their act together to put in place sensible regulations which allow residents to have safe access as guaranteed under state law.” Newman is also a member of the Oceanside Charitable Foundation and a board member of the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation. She wants to see the city’s local art scene increase its presence and continue to thrive. According to Newman, the “continued conflict on council remains an obstacle” for the city. “I will bring a fresh voice to Oceanside, one that is not bought by outside interests and vow to serve no more than two terms on council,” Newman states on her website’s platform page. Newman also wants to keep Council accountable by making sure funds from Measure X are used to address the very problems it was intended to fix, specifically infrastructure concerns in the city.

Del Mar, nonprofit school wrangle over lease terms By Dan Brendel
DEL MAR — Disagreement continues about lease terms between The Winston School, a private nonprofit school located on Shores Park property, and the institution’s landlord — the City of Del Mar. The simmering dispute boiled over when the city terminated renegotiation talks, which had begun in 2018, in a June 2 statement posted online. Winston’s response accused certain city councilors of making “inaccurate and defamatory statements,” among other misdeeds. “The city’s relationship with Winston is as a landlord,” said Councilman Dwight Worden, who coauthored the city’s June 2 statement with Councilwoman Sherryl Parks, in a June 16 interview. He lauded Winston, but said it should “honor the lease commitments [it] made.” Winston thinks it was strong-armed by the city into unfair lease terms in the first place, only after being used for capital fundraising. The school has long expected to renegotiate, but faces the city’s “bureaucratic obstructionism,” Winston’s Head of School Dena Harris told The Coast News in a June 15 interview. The Coast News obtained numerous original source documents related to the matter, which we’ve hyperlinked throughout the online version of this article. In 2005, the Del Mar Union School District, then-owner of the Shores property — of which Winston occupies the northwest corner — deemed the land surplus and sought to unload it. In 2006, Winston and the city signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), in this case a formal pre-lease agreement. Winston would fundraise to help the city buy the property, in exchange for “a long-term [55-year] lease in order to continue the operation of its school.” The city, as sole property owner, would count the school’s contribution as prepaid rent. Winston would redevelop its buildings during the lease period. When the lease expired, the school’s buildings would “be removed and the grounds restored to a graded lot.” However, without expounding details, the MOU envisioned opening “good faith negotiations for a new lease” upon the “complete development and replacement of [Winston’s] buildings.” In 2008, Winston raised $3 million toward the property’s $8.5 million purchase price. The school provided “our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt IRS designation, and also the financial mechanism (our brokerage account) to hold and steward these tax-deductible donated funds,” according to Winston’s October 2018 lease revision proposal. The school took those actions with the understanding that the

city would provide “a longterm home” for the school on “fiscally viable” terms, Harris said. The school’s fundraising efforts would help “preserve the site for … educational purposes for future generations,” according to Winston’s marketing materials from that time. This
school’s premises and the method of calculating inflationary rent increases. Winston did sign a lease in 2008, but wrangling continued. The 55-year lease presently in force wasn’t entered into until 2010, retroactive to 2008 and extending through 2063. The current lease out-
also requested to extend the lease from 55 years to 99 years, plus two 25-year renewal options. “It is only by amending the lease … that Winston can successfully proceed with the redevelopment of its campus,” according to Winston’s Oct. 29, 2018 lease revision proposal.
Winston primarily serves out of town children and school operations are not a part of the city’s mission. … [Winston] insisted on a substantial rent reduction without any factual basis.” An excerpt from a joint statement written by Del Mar Councilmembers Dwight Worden and Sherryl Parks
was widely understood to mean “the site’s perpetual use as The Winston School,” according to the aforementioned lease revision proposal. “I donated … with the clear intention to purchase land for a sustainable partnership and to build a permanent school site,” wrote Louise Ukleja, a Long Beach donor, in a 2019 letter. The city said it would furnish Winston a draft lease in May 2008, prior to the July 1 commencement date, according to an email from then City Attorney Tamara Smith. But the property purchase deal closed before the parties actually hammered out a final contract. “Winston did not even receive the first draft of the lease until after close of escrow,” Winston’s attorney Miguel Smith said in a Nov. 25, 2008 memo to the city. “The current draft lease is a radical departure from the terms of the MOU.” Winston disagreed with, for example, the draft lease’s definition of the
lines how the school must redevelop its buildings and eventually convey its interests to the city. And while it doesn’t specifically envision negotiating a new lease, the lease states it’s “entered into as contemplated by the [2006 MOU],” which did articulate such an intent. Winston and the city signed a new MOU in 2017, shortly after Winston hired Harris. While “not a final commitment by either party,” this new MOU contemplated “a long-term restructuring of the [lease].” The memorandum also indicated “each party is committed to, in good faith, exploring options with the goal of a better overall end product for the community and the school.” Harris considered a formal renegotiation period to have begun. In 2018, she asked the city to reduce Winston’s annual rent, after the prepayment expired, from $255,000 — eventually rising to $700,000 or more, factoring in inflationary increases — to $1. Harris
Otherwise, “onerous” rent obligations would preclude Winston’s financing the rebuild in a financially sustainable way. In a counterproposal, the city denied Harris’ requests, saying they’d amount to “a [cumulative] transfer of $10 million or more” — an unlawful “gift of public funds” to a private entity. Moreover, “giving up that revenue stream [from Winston’s rent] would impede achieving other planned city priorities and is unacceptable.” Instead, the city offered to waive Winston’s redevelopment requirement — estimating $20 million in savings for the school — and extend the lease to 80 years. Or, the school could redevelop as planned, but reduce its rent by including in the rebuild certain concessions to city interests, such as three or so affordable housing units or public parking. Winston disagreed with the city’s rationale and in turn rejected the counterproposal. Whitney
Hodges, Winston’s attorney, asserted in a letter that public money constitutes a “gift” only if it “does not fulfill a public purpose.” On the contrary, Winston’s “direct and tangible benefit to the students is, decidedly, a public benefit.” Harris points to the city’s deal with the Del Mar Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that pays no rent to occupy a city building adjacent to Winston. Though the Foundation, which runs music and other community programs, pays utilities and maintenance and has financed building improvements. Worden thinks it’s an unfair comparison, saying in a June 20 email that the Foundation’s deal, unlike a lease, guarantees no “longterm occupancy and other tenant rights.” Additionally, Worden said “there is a core difference between providing support for Del Mar nonprofits that provide services that are part of the city’s mission, and providing support for a private school, because education is not part of the city's mission. … The city relationship with [the Foundation] is more like its relationship to the Del Mar library,” which also occupies a city building rent-free. Harris thinks calling Winston a private school is misleading— the school is a private nonprofit but receives funds from public schools that “farm out” special needs students. While it budgets in two-year increments, the city projects long-term revenues and expenses, such as capital projects and bond interest payments. Starting 2023, when Winston’s prepaid rent runs out, the city’s latest 10-year financial forecast puts annual discretionary revenues at $20 million or more. Throughout the forecast period, Winston’s rent would account for between 1 and 4% of city revenues, depending on how one estimates inflationary rent increases. Though the city’s revenue forecast doesn’t yet include reductions due to COVID-19, which to date have been far more substantial for Del Mar than other North County cities. “The city gave notice that the negotiation period had ended,” a statement released following the council’s discussion of Winston’s lease during its June 1 closed session meeting. “Winston primarily serves out of town children and school operations are not a part of the city’s mission. … [Winston] insisted on a substantial rent reduction without any factual basis.” “[Worden and Parks’ statement] was neither voted on nor approved by the city council in a noticed public meeting,” according to Winston’s June 10 rebuttal. “The decision to terminate the negotiations … during the time of a declared pandemic … is a clear violation of the lease terms,” as the lease names “epidemic” as one reason for extending redevelopment deadlines.

Cox Communications to reduce carbon footprint in San Diego EDF Renewables North America selected for the project Cox Communications is installing the company’s first solar plus storage project in the country to help reduce its carbon footprint, and the project is taking place in San Diego. Cox has selected EDF Renewables North America to provide solar photovoltaics and battery energy storage services in support of Cox’s long-term financial and sustainability goals. EDF Renewables will design and build an integrated 360 kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic and 560 kW / 1,360 kilowatt hour (kWh) onsite behind-the-meter battery
storage solution at Cox Communications’ main campus in San Diego, located at 5159 Federal Blvd. The carport and roof-top solar installation combined are projected to offset more than 374 tons of carbon each year, contributing to the more than 567,000 tons of CO2 offset by Cox’s parent company, Cox Enterprises, since 2007 as a part of the Cox Conserves program. “Sustainability and driving positive environmental change are core to the way Cox does business,” said Sam Attisha, Senior Vice President and Region Manager for Cox Communications’ California region. “We’re excited our largest California facility is spearheading the use of solar power and battery storage to reduce our carbon footprint in the region.” The installation marks the first solar plus storage

landfills by 2024 and being carbon and water neutral by 2044.” Solar reduces utility costs by reducing energy consumption, while the battery storage shifts the solar generation into the evening on-peak period of expensive power. The storage system will also be used to mitigate spikes in usage, thereby, lowering utility demand charges. Raphael Declercq, Executive Vice President, Distributed Solutions and Strategy, at EDF Renewables said, “EDF Renewables is proud to work with Cox on this multi-technology project, demonstrating how a holistic solution provides the facility the most control of its operating energy costs – and further providing benefits to the employees and supporting Cox’s sustainability initiatives.”
I-5 ramp closure in Encinitas during weekend of July 10-13 Caltrans and SANDAG to realign I-5 on- and off-ramps for carpool/ HOV lane construction This summer, the Caltrans and SANDAG Build North Coast Corridor (NCC) team began a series of weekend on- and off-ramp closures along Interstate 5 (I-5) in Encinitas and Carlsbad. These closures will allow crews to realign the ramps to accommodate two new Carpool/High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lanes, one in each direction on I-5 between Birmingham Drive in Encinitas and Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. The next weekend ramp closure will begin Friday, July 10, at 9 p.m., and reopen on Monday, July 13, at 5 a.m. at the northbound I-5 on-ramp from Encinitas Boulevard.

However, businesses have no legal responsibility to the public to declare a positive case, even if that business is a restaurant and the individual is a chef or waitstaff handling food in a kitchen. “Yes, we could’ve legally opened our doors and pack [The Roxy] with music and people, making money hand over face because we’d be the only ones doing it, but it’s just not responsible nor safe,” Vrakas said. After learning of their first positive employees, both owners at GoodOnYa and The Roxy paid for their entire staff to receive testing — all of whom were negative. “We’re doing every-

During the next 18 months, weekend ramp closures are scheduled along I-5 at the following locations: Birmingham Drive; Santa Fe Drive; Encinitas Boulevard; Leucadia Boulevard; La Costa Avenue; Poinsettia Lane; and Palomar Airport Road. All closures will follow the same schedule, closing on Friday evening at 9 p.m. and reopening Monday morning at 5 a.m. Each closure is expected to occur once at each ramp location, and only one ramp will be closed on any given weekend.

What’s the point of one place doing it but not the rest? Customers go between restaurants and it just continues to spiral out of control.” Local businesses who voluntarily announce a positive case, run the risk of being publicly shamed and losing customers in a time where business and customers are scarce. In early June, The Henry, a popular restaurant in Coronado, had an employee test positive for COVID-19. Under the law, the establishment’s owners followed the county’s regulations. But The Henry remained open and never informed the public or the DEH of the positive case.

News of COVID-19 at The Henry, coupled with its lack of transparency, quickly spread on Facebook groups over Memorial Day weekend, sparking anger from Coronado residents accusing the restaurant of “putting profits over lives.” On July 6, The Henry publicly apologized, announcing a second employee had tested positive for COVID-19 and the business would close “until it could go through [safety] protocols, all of which mirror the San Diego Health Department’s and CDC guidance.” After its public acknowledgment, it is unknown whether owners of The Henry enforced social distancing protocols and protective face coverings. However, the company’s owners followed legal protocols, but still faces possible closure.
Irene Puyn, executive director of Encinitas 101 Mainstreet, reiterated the challenges facing businesses with customers and North County’s rising COVID numbers. “What frustrates me is when businesses are trying so hard to be compliant and go by the rules and just survive and then their own customers act really disrespectful,” Puyn said. “If the public doesn’t shape up then these businesses will be forced to close again,” Puyn said. “This second closure might be the one that ends them for good, because I will tell you, after the whole pandemic settles down, downtown Encinitas will look very different. “This isn’t political. It’s just a matter of being human and kind to each other.”

Deadly rabbit virus RHDV2 detected in San Diego County By City News Service
POWAY — A deadly virus targeting wild and domestic rabbits has been detected in San Diego County, state wildlife officials confirmed. Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (RHDV2) is not related to the novel coronavirus and does not affect humans or domestic animals other than rabbits. The virus had shown up in Mexico, and in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and Texas before it was found in a black-tailed jackrabbit carcass submitted from private property near Palm Springs in May — its first sighting in California. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife reports that it has since been detected in San Diego, Orange and San Bernardino counties. A wild jackrabbit died of RHDV2 in Poway in June, according to the House Rabbit Society. “Infected rabbits and jackrabbits may exhibit no symptoms leading up to their sudden death, or may suffer from fever, swelling, internal bleeding and liver necrosis,” a CDFW statement said. “The range of susceptible species in North America is currently unknown, but all rabbit, jackrabbit, hare and pika species are likely susceptible.” Officials have issued the following guidelines
for those who own domestic rabbits or who come into contact with wild hares: — House rabbits should remain inside at all times to minimize potential contact; — Any sick or dead rabbits should be reported to state wildlife officials and should NOT be touched; — Any unusual illness or sudden rabbit deaths should be reported to your veterinarian immediately; — The virus is highly contagious, and can be spread by direct contact with infected animals and/ or their urine/feces; can also be spread on contaminated objects, insects, etc., therefore good hygiene practices are necessary — i.e. wash hands thoroughly before and after handling rabbits, thorough disinfection, leave shoes outside, insect control, etc. — Know your hay/feed sources and if they are near areas affected by the outbreak; — Keep dogs on a leash when outside so they don’'t interact with wild rabbits; consider having dogs wear booties when outside, or wash their paws before they come inside. Keep dogs and rabbits in separate areas of your home. A vaccine has been developed and is available on order. Domestic rabbit owners are encouraged to contact their veterinarian for more information.
Aw, Snap! A police officer in West Yorkshire, England, shared the thoughts of many after being called to the scene of a wreck involving a $300,000 Lamborghini that lasted only 20 minutes on the road before it was totaled on June 24. “It’s only a car,” the officer tweeted, but he “could have cried.” According to the BBC, the car suffered a mechanical failure during its virgin drive and came to a stop in the outside land of the M1 motorway, where it was rear-ended by a van. The driver of the van suffered nonserious head injuries in the crash. The Lamborghini driver was not identified, nor was it clear whether he was hurt in the crash. [BBC, 6/25/2020] Idle Hands TikTok user Kevin Wise told KSLA he was looking for his five minutes of fame when he jumped into a fish tank at Bass Pro Shop in Bossier, Louisiana, in late June. “I said that if I got 2,000 likes, I would jump in the tank,” Wise said. “I got way more than that and didn’t want to be a liar.” Shopper Treasure McGraw recorded video of Wise swimming around in the tank before he climbed out and ran through the store, soaking wet. “We heard a big splash, and I thought it was one of the fish,” McGraw said. Initially, Bass Pro Shops said it would not press charges, but on June 26, the company filed a complaint with the Bossier City Police Department, noting that it had to empty the 13,000-gallon tank and clean it after Wise’s swim. Wise wouldn’t recommend the stunt to others. “Don’t do spur-of-the-moment crap like I do,” he warned. [KSLA, 6/26/2020] Repeat Offender Devin Roberts, 32, of Bardwell, Kentucky, caught the attention of local media after being

arrested three times in one week. Carlisle County Sheriff’s deputies first encountered Roberts on June 23, WSIL reported, when he called the sheriff’s office to say he had taken a case he found next to a dumpster that turned out to contain items belonging to the city. When officers arrived, they determined the case had been removed from a city building. The following Saturday, Roberts was accused of fighting with a grocery store clerk and making lewd comments to female employees. Sheriff William Gilbert found Roberts at his home, passed out in a running vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. He had also left his 3-year-old son at home with another inebriated person. Finally, on June 28, deputies pulling over a car on suspicion of drunken driving found Roberts in the passenger seat, drunk and in possession of alcohol, which violated the terms of his earlier bonds. Roberts faces multiple charges related to all three encounters. [WSIL, 6/28/2020] Questionable Judgments — The Sun reported on June 29 that two Ryanair pilots are in the (chicken) soup after they recorded themselves getting silly with a rubber chicken in the cockpit of a Boeing 737-800. In the video, thought to be recorded as passengers boarded the plane in Birmingham, England, the first officer and pilot trade off using the chicken to operate the airplane’s throttle and making it squeak while mugging for the camera. Other crew members laugh in the background. A spokesperson for Ryanair commented: “These pictures and videos show crew on the ground in a parked aircraft with the engines shut down. While the images are unprofessional, the actions in them posed no risk and safety was never compromised. ... (Nevertheless) we are investigating the matter further.” [The Sun, 6/29/2020]
— Merseyside Police responding to the scene of a crash in Huyton, England, in the wee hours of June 28 say they arrived in time to witness a woman “finishing off a glass of wine,” according to the Echo. In the collision, a white Mercedes had plowed into a parked Ford Focus, with both cars sustaining significant damage. Photographs from the scene showed the Mercedes to contain an empty wine bottle on the floor of the passenger seat, along with a wine glass, and another full bottle in a storage compartment. Police announced the arrest of two women, 33 and 35, on suspicion of unauthorized taking of a motor vehicle and drunk driving. [Echo, 6/29/2020] This Old House Firefighters were called to a home in Guilford, Connecticut, on June 29 where a resident had fallen through a wood floor in the 177-year-old house and down about 30 feet into a well, WHDH reported. The victim treaded water for about 25 minutes while responders worked to hoist them out. Apparently, the well had been covered over by an addition made to the home during a 1981 renovation. “Some of these older, historical homes may have hazards that were not updated by current code,” the Guilford Police Department tweeted. The victim was taken to the hospital but had only minor injuries. [WHDH, 6/29/2020] Chutzpah Fisherman Dawson Cody Porter, 22, of Eagle River, Alaska, was arrested June 27 outside the Fisherman’s Bar after arriving there driving a stolen fire truck with its emergency lights flashing, the Anchorage Daily News reported. Bristol Bay Borough police said Porter broke into the King Salmon Fire Station around 9 p.m., where he started the truck and drove it through the station’s closed bay doors, making his way west on the Alaska Peninsula
Highway about 15 miles to Naknek. Police Chief John Rhyshek said Porter caused about $10,000 in damage and put the fire truck out of commission while repairs are made to it. [Anchorage Daily News, 6/29/2020] A Family Affair Retired wheat farmer Peter Grundy, 84, of Denilliquin, New South Wales, Australia, has wanted to sell his apartment in Melbourne for the past eight years so he can move to a retirement home, but he’s been foiled by his 49-yearold daughter, Katrina, who refuses to move out. Grundy has taken his daughter to court to evict her, Nine reported, but she won’t budge, and Grundy is running out of options. “I’m sure it’s taken the bit of youth I had left in me,” said Grundy, describing his daughter as “very clever in legal terms.” Katrina contends her parents gifted her the apartment, but a judge has dismissed that claim. Dad has spent about $70,000 (Australian) in legal fees. “She has an enormous capability to come up with things we never hear of,” he said. [Nine, 6/24/2020] Should Have Seen It Coming Alexander Feaster, 44, in Hunter, Oklahoma, was arrested and charged in the June 28 shooting of an unnamed 26-yearold woman who had been attending a party across the street from Feaster’s property. Garfield County Sheriff Jody Helm told KFOR that, on a dare, the woman had tried to steal one of two Nazi swastika flags displayed in Feaster’s front yard, but “on the way back, someone hollered gun. She dropped the flag ... and shots were fired.” Police executing a search warrant on the home found more than a dozen guns and ammunition. Feaster was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon and shooting with intent to kill. The woman is expected to survive. [KFOR, 6/29/2020]

1993. After four seasons, Dubose had signed with the New York Jets in 1997 as a free agent, but he was waived by the team several months later. Goldsmith recalled after being cut from the Jets until shortly before DuBose’s death, the former Notre Dame star had fallen on some hard times. Eventually, the 6’1’, 235-pound athlete moved to Mission Beach to live with his friend Randy West and started playing competitive beach volleyball. On July 24, 1999, Dubose had been partying with friends when he mis-
have this friend. You have one just like her, I know. She is the friend I always marvel at, gently envy and love despite her shortcomings. Her shortcomings? Well, we all have them. Hers differ because they aren’t really shortcomings — more like longcomings, I suppose. This is that friend who seems to accomplish everything I do — kids, school, job, house, car — yet she lacks the wear and tear I seem to so readily display. Invariably, she is up and out early, even when she doesn’t have to be. And she’s cheerful. And she has read her morning paper cover to cover. Women who can do that will someday rule the world. When I finally give in to the alarm, I am lucky to get out the door with my contact lenses in the right eyes. She gardens. Not because she has to, but because she finds serenity in it and loves the feel of the earth between her fingers. She and her yard have stuck a truce. I am still at war with mine. I can handle dirt under my fingernails. It’s the 45 minutes in line at the garden store, the battle to attach the anti-fungus sprayer and the ant nest I invariably upend that I’m not so thrilled about. I’ve never heard my friend mention any of these things, though, including the asparagus fern thorn in your thumb. Speaking of fingers: Her nails are always beautifully manicured. Mine are reasonably manicured every six months or so, last about two days and then fall prey to tape that must be scraped loose, splinters that need removing and tacks to be pried out. Next thing I know, every nail is a different length. My lovely friend never has a bad hair day. She even looks good first thing in the morning, which is hard to forgive. She probably has

Friends honor slain NFL star By Jordan P. Ingram
DEL MAR — Every Fourth of July for the past 37 years, a group of North County residents have brought a fleet of inflatable rafts to the Del Mar beach for a floating baccanal. But in the wake of a resurgent COVID-19 pandemic and weeks of Black Lives Matter protests, the group of mostly high school friends, including Del Mar Deputy Mayor Terry Gaasterland, chose to do something different. This year, members of the holiday regatta chose to march in honor of their friend and former NFL linebacker Adolphus Demetrius “Demo” DuBose, who was shot 12 times (five times in the back) and killed by two San Diego police officers on July 24, 1999, following an altercation in Mission Beach. One of the group’s founding members and former commodore (each year, the group selects a new leader or “commodore”), Chris Goldsmith, president of Belly Up Entertainment in Solana Beach, said many questioned whether they should even have its annual celebration. “There is so much going on in the world right now with social justice, and it just felt a little bit out of touch with how were all personally feeling, and cer-

tainly how the country is feeling,” Goldsmith said. However, the group realized they each had a connection to racial injustice after the death of DuBose, a former Del Mar resident, two decades earlier and de-
cided to pay him tribute. After speaking with members of DuBose’s family and other friends, the group made t-shirts featuring a picture of “Demo” and wore them as they walked from the intersection of

South Cedros Avenue and Cofair Avenue to access the beach on 23rd Street in Del Mar. Upon arriving at thebeach, the group walked to the shoreline, took a knee and sang a rousing version of the national anthem beofre commencing with festivities. “(DuBose) was just a wonderful person, a warm, friendly, funny person,” Goldsmith said. “He very quickly became a part of our social fabric. He was a really neat person to be around and brought a lot of positive energy.” In 1993, DuBose was drafted 34th overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in

Getting creative to salvage the summer vacation hit the road e’louise ondash
here is so much to be said about summer vacations — and so much that can’t be said because of the continuing pandemic and all the uncertainty around whether to take a vacation or not. Looks like I’ll be staying put, at least through mid-October, but others I know are trying to figure out how to travel within limitations. In some cases, you’ll have to expend extra effort to visit that destination. For instance, before exploring Alaska, you must produce a travel declaration form and several negative COVID-19 tests, fill out some surveys, then foot the bill for a 14-day quarantine before you actually start that vacation. A similar dance is required by Hawaii. And then there are those states that won’t let you in, no matter what, if you hail from the Golden State. The rules and regs change frequently, so the lesson here is to check them before you choose your destination and/or purchase that plane ticket. P.S. — Hawaii and New York impose fines as

high as $10,000 for various COVID-related infractions. Europe doesn’t want Americans (re)infecting their populace either, so AFAR Magazine’s website ( ht t ps : / / w w w. a fa r.com) suggests making these substitutions: Aspen, Colo., for the Swiss Alps; Calistoga, in Napa Valley, for the Czech spa town of Karlovy Vary; and (who knew?) Catalina Island for the Greek Islands. To encourage that substitution, Catalina has launched a “Love Catalina Island” campaign
(www.lovecatalina.com) to bring more visitors 26 miles across the sea, according to consumer advocate and travel writer Christopher Elliot (https://chriselliotts. com/). “Catalina’s new site is more than a fresh take on a favorite California destination,” he writes. “It also keeps visitors up to date on the latest hotel and attraction grand openings.” To mitigate the disastrous effects of the virus, some destinations are getting creative.
A few wineries in Sonoma County are offering private tours and accommodations that promise to be practically sterile. Masks, of course, are required everywhere and at all times except when sipping and supping. A recent survey conducted by Travel Leaders Network, an organization representing travel agents who design personalized itineraries, found that half of the 2,700 frequent travelers interviewed “are starting to make finite plans for
their next vacation or have already made plans, while the other half continues to dream about it.” Forty-three percent said they’ll hold off until 2021. Some consumers figure that, if they can’t visit a foreign country or fly long distances, camping is one alternative. That’s why searches for campgrounds are up 400% on the campground-search app, The Dyrt (https://thedyrt. com/), according to Sunset Magazine’s email newsletter; memberships on the
app have increased 500%. These same reasons, as well as the need to social distance, are no doubt driving the demand for recreational vehicles, which is up 1,600%, according to RVshare CEO Jon Gray. Travel writer Sean Szymkowski confirms this. “The spread of COVID-19 has made air travel and public transportation mighty unpopular options,” which means that “personal vehicles feel like more of a safe haven.” This trend bodes well for Jonathan Distad, a tech entrepreneur who recently launched Blacksford (https: //www.blacksford. com), an RV rental enterprise that offers a highend experience. Rental packages include a new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and various amenities, like fully stocked vehicles and “curated itineraries.” Prices start at $199/day. After signing up online, “we greet you at your airport gate, load your bags … and offer 24-hour roadside assistance,” Distad says. Pick-up service is currently available at Las Vegas and Bozeman, Montana, airports, with plans to open at Denver International Airport this month.

Nursing students pair with Catholic Charities By Catherine Allen
SAN MARCOS — Cal State San Marcos School of Nursing has partnered with Catholic Charities in San Diego to provide students with 135 clinical hours required to graduate and become licensed nurses. With this partnership, students remain on track to graduate in August, receiving their Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a two-year program for students who already hold a degree in a non-nursing discipline. “I can speak for my entire cohort in saying that we’re a little concerned with how we’re gonna get all of the experience,” said Angeliki Hitchcock, a nursing student and volunteer at Catholic Charities’ Rachel’s Women’s Center. “With nursing, the handson experience is the most important piece, so we’re all pretty eager to get out there and start helping.” The students work 12hour shifts educating and screening the residents for health issues, namely skin cancer, diabetes and hypertension, according to Nursing lecturer Madelyn Lewis. With Rachel’s nine-person staff serving 120 women a day and La Posada’s seven-person staff working a 100-bed, roundthe-clock shelter — both sites operated by Catholic Charities — the CSUSM partnership helps compen-

sate for staff shortages. “Not one of our programs has all the staff we need,” says Catholic Charities’ Homeless Services Director Antoinette Fallon. “[The students] really were a valuable safety net for the staff and people we serve. The staff is so busy sometimes, they can’t sit with somebody who’s struggling and listen to their story or just talk with them.” Catholic Charities shelters have not reported any COVID-19 cases but have not been able to conduct mass testing since May. The students provide residents with temperature checks and question-
naires, but spreading the virus remains a concern. “You don’t know if you’re getting exposed when you go into work and into the community,” says Ilaina Hernandez, a La Posada volunteer. “It takes a toll on you. As a healthcare provider, you wouldn’t want to do anything to hurt anybody else — that’s the last thing that you wanna do. But we’re practicing everything that we can and we’re doing our best.” The CSUSM Community Health curriculum provides a first look into serving vulnerable populations, people who oftentimes don’t have access to adequate living conditions

or healthcare. Fallon says some students already hope to continue volunteering and may pursue public health after graduation. Hitchcock is one such student. “You don’t really realize how big of an issue it is,” Hitchcock said. “The amount of people living on the streets compared to the resources is just astronomical. I felt a little ignorant before. Now knowing what I know, I want to continue to help serve in any way I can. It wasn't the experience I necessarily thought I would be getting, but I think it's better than anything else I would've been doing.”
Humane Society celebrates zero euthanasia By Staff
REGION — San Diego Humane Society is celebrating the five-year anniversary of “Getting to Zero,” the San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition’s commitment to reaching zero euthanasia of healthy or treatable animals in San Diego County. Before July 1, 2015, treatable animals were at risk of euthanasia in shelters due to sheer numbers and limited resources. “‘Getting to Zero’ was truly a milestone for San Diego, because it was the first time in our region’s history that no healthy or treatable animal was at risk for being unnecessarily euthanized,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president of San Diego Humane Society. “San Diego is one of the safest communities in the nation for animals.” San Diego Humane Society has not euthanized a healthy or treatable animal since 2002. When the San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition — a collaboration of area shelters, foster families, rescue groups and other lifesaving partners — was able to reach the same goal of zero euthanasia in July 2015, it meant that all healthy and treatable animals entering the San Diego animal sheltering system were safe from being euthanized.

Monks of Gaden Shartse visit Encinitas
on fire Susan Sullivan
ur friends over at the California Institute of Human Science (CIHS) are welcoming the monks of Gaden Shartse Monastic College to lead a course on Tibetan Buddhism along with a series of healing and empowerment ceremonies. Each offering is designed to help illuminate the nature of the mind and provide us with the courage and renewal needed to meet modern life's challenges. The series began on July 1 and will still be open at the time this column comes out. he Medicine Buddha healing (bringing to light the inner capacity for healing), a Vajrasattva Empowerment (associated with the purification of karma and removal of obstacles) and a White Tara empowerment (associated with compassion and long life). Seems timely. I asked what the benefit for the readership will be to participate in what is being offered by the monks. I was told that this group provides the opportunity to observe and learn from the representatives of an unbroken lineage, a rare glimpse into the life used in the mastery of spiritual practice. Observing the monks makes me think of the quote by Thich Nhat Hanh. “There is a misconception that Buddhism is a religion and that you worship Buddha. Buddhism is a practice, like yoga. You can be a Christian and practice Buddhism. I met a Catholic priest who lives in a Buddhist monastery in France. He told me that Buddhism
makes him a better Christian. I love that.” Seeing the reverence and dedication to something greater than yourself is always inspiring and brings us closer to our own enlightenment. I hope you take this opportunity to check it out while they are in Encinitas. The monks of Gaden Shartse Norling Monastic College arrived in the United States in February for their 2020-2022 Sacred Arts of Tibet Tour. They were in Grass Valley when the coronavirus required them to return to their stateside monastery in Long Beach for the quarantine. During this time, the tour monks and monks at Gaden Shartse Thubten Dhargye Ling have offered daily prayers and the creation of Four Sacred Sand Mandalas dedicated to the healing well-being of all sentient beings. Sheltering the monks during this challenging time has been made possible by the kind donations of their sponsors. The primary purpose of the tour is to present the Tibetan perspective of Buddha's teachings, present numerous Empowerments, and provide lectures. The generous funds donated help maintain the Gade Shartse University’s temples, classrooms, library, texts, kitchens, food, grounds, and fields. Approximately $2 is needed to support one monk for one day. The success of the tour is due to the help and generosity of those who support the tours. All of the community events series will be held online and are open to the general public. Find out more and get details on what offerings are still available by visiting the CIHS website at www.cihs.edu.

‘Which way’s the Wedge?’ Revisiting a Newport hot spot
Vista Chamber celebrates new year, board By Staff
“The Dirty Old Wedge.” — Bruce Brown, “The Endless Summer”
he Newport Wedge is more like a dump truck of wet concrete than a wave. What begins as a disorganized mess of wind and water hundreds of miles to our south cleans up and picks up steam before skirting the northern end of Newport Harbor and colliding like a locomotive with a side wave that sends the wave skyward. The Wedge is unlike every other wave in many ways, the biggest difference being that it rarely lets you go without punishment and you are nearly guaranteed to end each ride in a headon collision with the mighty Pacific. I first became aware of the Wedge in the early ’60s when my friends spoke about it reverently, like they did the Banzai Pipeline. One friend broke his hip there, and another dislocated his knee. I was a kook, and the worst type of a kook — one who didn’t realize he was a kook. Add to that a touch for

the dramatic and a flare for exaggeration and you get a 13-year-old boy walking up the beach board under arm, asking a stranger, “Which way’s the Wedge?” Of course I had no thought of actually surfing there. Others talked less and performed more, as decades later Newport’s Danny Kwock and the legendary Christian Fletcher paddled their boards into those throaty barrels. It had been years since I had witnessed the Wedge, hard thumping in all its glory, when my neighbor, New-
port transplant Steve Gibbs asked me to check it out. It was a bright, sunny July 4 morning and we were greeted with signs saying that the beach was closed in response to the omnipresent C-19. We went anyway, being sure to safely distance ourselves from others gathered on shore. You could hear it before you saw it, the sound of heavy water collapsing with the dull thud of a thousand newspapers hitting the front porch at the same time. The lifeguards and police who patrolled the sand
on quads were polite and gave us fair warning that we would be ticketed if we did not soon move. They allowed us to push it for just one more set as columns of water collapsed like a brick building being demolished, and the mist from breaking waves fell over us like summer rain. From the beach it was easy to see that you needed to be careful out there and choose the right wave, one with a proper shoulder on it. If not, you would be in the midst of a closeout that would send you rag-dolling
into the sand bottom. Even those of us safely on shore could feel the sharp pain of mistakes made and the ensuing blackness while rolling home. I’m glad I never made it to the Wedge when I was a foolish kid, all those years ago.

Admiration for Padres’ Tatis can’t be masked sports talk jay paris
GOLF WALK FOR CHARITY
John Ashworth, co-founder and president of Oceanside-based apparel brand Linksoul, keeps his pledge to walk and complete 108 golf holes at the Goat Hill Park Golf Course in Oceanside on June 29, raising money for healthy meals for local nonprofit organization Feeding San Diego. Ashworth annually takes on the 108-golf hole challenge to raise money for the North County Junior Golf Association. Due to the pandemic, the schedule was greatly reduced, so Ashworth sought out another nonprofit that could benefit from his journey. Ashworth’s goal was $25,000 and has already hit $26,000.

e’re talking Padres and why wouldn’t a mask be part of the conversation? Except when leading into this bizzaro baseball season, catcher Austin Hedges’ tools of ignorance aren’t the focal point. Usually we wonder if Hedges, a delightful defender, will hit his weight. Instead it’s wait-andsee for players, coaches and fans to learn if the MLB is going to be A-OK in an abbreviated year dominated by COVID-19. The dreadful disease, which has killed more than 130,000 Americans, including nearly 400 in San Diego County, isn’t showing signs of taking a pitch. It’s the opposite with positive tests rising throughout our region, and somehow that leads us to a 21-year-old shortstop for guidance. The Padres’ most exciting player is also among their most cerebral. “Credit to Tatis,” said Jayce Tingler, the Padres’ rookie skipper. We toast Tatis, as in Fernando Jr., too. The most electric Padre in recent memory is piping in with the best of advice to slow the spread of COVID-19: Wear a mask! “I just feel it’s more protection for other people
FERNANDO TATIS JR. is leading by example.
to wear it around,” he said. “I feel my (teammates) are more protected that way from me if something happens or from each other.” Tatis gets it and maybe him traipsing around the Petco Park diamond rocking a mask will influence others. While Manny Machado is the hired-gun star of the team, it’s the engaging Tatis who has connected more with the Padres Nation. Why? It’s how Tatis goes about his business which endears him to others. He dives right, he leaps left and he goes all-out in proving that he is all-in to be a Padres standout now, and well into the future.

So if Tatis can lure doubters into a world where empathy and concern for others is the real game, just maybe the Padres’ summer camp will have an off-thefield impact. In a video conference call with reporters, while donning a mask, Tatis told his tale. “It’s not easy when you’re running and stuff like that,” said Tatis, who is in constant motion between the lines. “So far, I’m just going to wear mine.” MLB is wearing thin on many after a three-month argument over who gets paid what delivered terrible optics in the midst of a national emergency. Even after all the horse-trading between the owners and players, it’s been anything but a smooth ride since practices resumed. Tests are unavailable CROP or .93 delayed in being scrutinized. Players are told one .93 only to see plans for thing 4.17protection unfulfilled, their 4.28 to doubt the sport’s leading non-bubble approach in resuming the games will fly. That’s why numerous players are opting out, willing to leave millions on the table for the sake of their, and their families’, health.
Mike Trout, the Los Angeles Angels’ superstar, is training with the team — sporting a mask, we might add — but has yet to sign off on the season with his wife expecting their first child next month. This 60-game sprint of a campaign, for the Padres, is scheduled to start on July 24 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. But the prospects of that happening relies on players not testing positive and infecting others. COVID-19 is on everyone’s mind, which has led public health officials to encourage all to cover their faces. That scientific knowledge hopefully would have citizens looping a mask string over their lobes, although the message to some has come in one ear and gone out the other. “(Tatis) somehow finds a way to make it look extremely cool,” Tingler said. “Hats off to him.” Masks on for everyone else. “I just want to feel more safe,” Tatis said, “all the way around.” Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com.

takenly entered the apartment next door to West’s unit. Witnesses described Dubose appeared to be under the influence of drugs, which was later confirmed after a toxicology report found cocaine, alcohol and ecstasy (MDMA) in his system. The neighbor asked Dubose to leave and called the police. Shortly after West and Dubose seemingly resolved the situation with West’s neighbor, two SDPD officers had responded to the scene of a reported burglary in process. Initially, Dubose was cooperative with law enforcement. However, the situation intensified when officers attempted to handcuff Dubose and place him under arrest. Dubose fled down an alleyway and was chased by police. According to police statements, Dubose wrestled with both officers, eventually gaining possession of their nunchakus (a martial arts weapon) and began attacking them. Both officers opened fire. Dubose was pronounced dead at 9:14 p.m. at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. Much like the death of George Floyd, Dubose’s death caused outrage in the African American commu-

However, subsequent investigations into the officer-involved shooting found both officers were “legally justified” in the fatal incident, despite one witness’s account that Dubose was walking away from police and shot from behind.

ESCONDIDO — For the first time in San Diego Zoo Global’s history, an echidna baby — or puggle, as they are called — has hatched at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The puggle was estimated to have hatched in February. This unique, tiny, spiny Australian species has small eyes and a distinctive beak, or snout. Now at 4 months, the puggle is still developing its protective spines, and it is moving around on its wobbly little legs as it grows and gains strength—using its sharp claws to dig into the ground and keep its balance. Echidnas are solitary animals, with adult males and females only coming together to breed once a year. Approximately four weeks after conception, the mother lays a single, soft egg about the size of a grape and places it in a pouch on her abdomen. After 7 to 10 days, a tiny, naked puggle—smaller than a jelly bean—hatches. Echidnas are one of only two mammals that lay eggs; the other is the platypus. They have no teeth, but are well adapted to eat ter-
mites, ants, beetle larvae and other soil invertebrates. Their large, strong claws are great for breaking open rotting logs, and their long snouts—made of keratin, the same material human fingernails are made of—allow them to root around in soil. A day in the life of this puggle consists of sleeping the majority of the time, growing and developing in its warm, dark burrow. Animal care specialists check the puggle each day to monitor its body condition, hydration and weight, ensuring that it is getting proper nutrition from its mother. While it weighed less than an ounce at hatching, the growing puggle now weighs just over a pound and measures about 6 inches in length. Once the puggle gains strength and is weaned from its mother, at around 6 to 7 months, it will start venturing out on its own and will no longer have contact with its mother. Echidnas live in Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea, from the highlands to the deserts and forests.

(“terroir”) from which the wine came. Blended wines are excluded as they tend to be a mix of several red grapes. For a seven-bottle test, I would suggest you include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and Malbec. Pass around an information sheet (with a pen for each guest) that includes an agenda with times for meet-and-greet, buffet and drinks, going over the rules, a time frame for tasting and discussion among the
guests, and a finish time for all guests to fill in their choices (i.e., No. 1 was a Malbec, etc.) before the bags are removed to disclose the wines. Each form will be tallied for correct answers and winners are then announced with wine prizes awarded to the top three guests with the largest number of correct choices. In a number of my columns, I refer to the five S’s of tasting. If your guests know their wines, they use this system to identify and get the most knowledge out of wine consumption. The five are: Sight, swirl, smell, sip and swallow. (For more on this, check out the May 10, 2020, column at tasteofwineandfood.com.) As host you should supply appetizers before and during the tasting and make water available for sipping between wine tastes. Make sure the glasses are all the same size and let guests know that a maximum 2-ounce pour will be allowed. Don’t burn candles or allow room fresheners to interfere with the smell of each wine. Make sure the red wines being tasted are less than room temperature — 65 degrees is perfect to

A changing of the guard at Rosanna’s Pasta Shop lick the plate david boylan
here has been some restaurant revisiting of late and that usually happens when either there is some big news or I just feel so strongly about the place that more Lick the Plate love is in order. In this case, it’s a combination of the two. The husband and wife team of Rosanna Martin and Jean-Luis Martin retired a while back and their daughter Sara has taken over as owner-operator of Rosanna’s Pasta Shop in Encinitas. That and I’ve met several people in the area lately whom I consider in the know of area restaurants who had not heard of Rosanna’s, and I literally gasped in disbelief. I had the chance to interview Sara Martin for my radio show, “Lick the Plate,” on 101.5 KGB and while we were discussing her life as told through food and music memories, I thought this would be a great time to update Coast News readers on the status

of Rosanna’s. I am happy to report back that all is well and that Sara has kept things pretty much the way they were before, which is great news for all of us regulars. Before I get into her story, I’d like to briefly touch on that of her Italian mom and French dad, who
met in England. Jean-Luis was there to finish his apprenticeship to become a culinary chef, and Rosanna was there for art and business school. They came to the United States to work primarily because of the great opportunities in the early 1980s here for French chefs.
Jean-Luis took a job at the La Costa Resort & Spa to open the Champagne Room. Fast forward to them opening The Italian Market 1987 on Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas. That is where I became familiar with Rosanna’s, and I followed them over to their current location on El
But there was this beer. When I opened my eyes, the glass was still hovering near my lips. The beer glows golden, reminiscent of a wheat field in the fading summer light. Nearly perfectly translucent, the only breaks in clarity were the swirling trails of carbonation forming a near perfect mandala. Every song emitted from the speaker was the right one for the moment. Every smell, the neighbors’ charcoal grill, the exhaust from a passing motorcycle, hints of pine and clove from my beard oil, mix with the light yet distinctly bread-y beer aroma. The overgrown palms in the neighbors’ lawn
waved their fronds at me. I closed my eyes once more and did … nothing. No cellphone out to compulsively check Instagram or Twitter. I successfully ignored that book, and no part of me even pretended not to enjoy the peace of just sitting. Since I’m not home with the family (who I miss dearly, and obviously, I’d rather be with you if you’re reading this), I also never try to get through a conversation about the upcoming election with Uncle So-and-So, or get sprayed in the crotch by Cousin Something-or-Other’s unrelentingly cute kids who’ve commandeered the garden hose. I know I won’t be sleeping on a rock-hard guest
bed, or in a tent on the ground. I just drank one unbelievably delicious local beer, half dozed off, and let the sun’s rays wrap around me. That beer was my holiday, and I made a note to myself to remember that when life starts getting hectic again, I can take a 15-minute vacation whenever I need.

Camino Real. Sara grew up in the restaurant and while she did take some time to explore the world for a few years, it was in her blood, and she returned sensing that at some point her parents were going to retire. The menu has stayed pretty much the same, though Sara will add more seasonal limited items and specials. Now for those of you who do not know Rosanna’s, here is a brief explanation of why you need to put it on your list of regular stops immediately. As I said several years ago, Rosanna’s reminds me of a joint one would find in an urban neighborhood, not a strip mall on El Camino Real in Encinitas. It’s a narrow storefront with a nice selection of wine and other Italian products up front, followed by coolers filled with fresh pasta, olives, cheese, dishes to go, and Italian meats. One thing I always notice when I go in to pick up an order is the faces of the customers. There is a look of anticipation, excitement and happiness as they wait for their food. The folks getting it to go tend to bolt to their cars, counting the minutes until they are home and can dig into that Italian goodness.
There have been several occasions where my food has not made the trip home — I pulled over on a side street and ate it all in the car. I’ve always been somewhat of a creature of habit when it comes to Rosanna’s, though I have been spreading my wings of late. My go-to is the meatball sandwich (which is more of a sub or hoagie than a traditional sandwich) with extra provolone cheese — though that’s just a personal preference. The soft roll with the crunchy edges, house-made meatballs and sauce with cheese is on my mind on a regular basis. They also offer a hot sausage with peppers and eggplant Parmesan in this category as well. The lasagna is as good as I’ve had anywhere, period. It’s just so perfect. I prefer to order it hot to go and by the time I get it home, it’s still warm, but the cheese has solidified to the point where it’s easier to cut slices while holding it’s shape. I’m not sure if this is a serving for two or not but it’s very difficult to resist eating the whole thing. If I do exercise some self-control, it’s equally good cold as breakfast the

trying. Of the seven salads, I’ve only had the Caprese California with sliced tomato, basil, fresh mozzarella, avocado, and hearts of palm, with an olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. It’s their take on the traditional caprese and it’s darn good. In addition to fabulous deserts and wine to go, don’t forget to shop for pantry staples in their small market. Get to Rosanna’s, you will not regret it. Rosanna’s is located at 270 N. El Camino Real, Suite I. For more information, call (760) 753-6867 or visit online at rosannaspastashop.com.

next morning. In fact, cold lasagna from Rosanna’s is a go-to fixer the day after a big night out. It’s kind of in the same category as cold pizza but much more satisfying. Trust me on this one; it’s all that and then some. There are 11 varieties of homemade pasta available with as many selections of sauces and toppings. I did venture into panini-land recently and kept it simple with the ham and provolone cheese, but I counted 11 different types of panini and every one looked like it was worth
The summer 2020 Carlsbad Music Festival has been officially canceled. After much creative brainstorming, discussion and reflection, organizers determined that with the pandemic and the restrictions in place, holding the Festival or alternative programming this summer would be prohibitive. The festival will be back in 2021.

Can your brain be defragged and rebalanced? Carlsbad-based Life Coach utilizes a brain training system to optimize your brain Do you sometimes feel like you’re just “off” and not functioning at your best? It’s safe to say we all have those moments or seasons in life when we’re not our best selves, we’re struggling or stuck in a rut, or we’re not reaching our goals. At some point, we come face to face with our physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual issues that prevent us from becoming all we can be. Some challenges we are born with, while others are put upon us by life circumstances and dramas, even things like the recent COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent stay-at-home orders. Life does and will hit hard. Six years ago, Bruce (Buck) A. McDavid was introduced to NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback®. It sounds like a mouthful, but it changed his life. McDavid, a veteran, had a degree in physics and owned his own company. For over 30 years, he was drawn to mentoring individuals and helping them through personal crises. Determined to follow his passions, he pursued a master’s degree in counseling psychology. After completing his internship, McDavid, or Buck as he likes to be called, decided to forgo psychotherapy licensing, and identified with being a Life Coach. As such, Buck combines his academic knowledge, personal/ professional life skills and experiences, practical wisdom, and intuition to assist his clients. An important tool in this process has been the NeurOptimal® brain training system. For Buck, NeurOptimal® caused him to become more grounded, centered, and focused, resulting in a synergy and integration between his brain and heart. Neurofeedback has been effectively used for over 40 years to optimize the brain, which controls emotions and behaviors. Neurofeedback is considered a gentle, painless, and non-invasive method of restoring balance within our
complex but intrinsically intelligent central nervous system. NeurOptimal® is an evolutionary neurofeedback system designed by Ph.D. Clinical Psychologists in 1996 that monitors your brain’s electrical output and mirrors it back to your brain in a way that al-
NeurOptimal® is safe for all ages: infants, children, adults, seniors, and the elderly. Why do we need this tool? As life hits hard, and it has with the consequences of the recent pandemic, our brain isn’t always able to respond well or quickly.
FOCUS | WELLBEING PEACE OF MIND MENTAL ALERTNESS HEALTHY SLEEP HABITS ANXIETY MANAGEMENT EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE lows your central nervous system to make corrections and optimize itself. Nothing is put into your brain - no electricity; no strong frequency, vibration, light, or sound – but there are life-enhancing results (U.S. Food & Drug Administration designated NeurOptimal® a General Wellness Product).
Our brain, which naturally wants to function optimally, will repeat the same pattern and story. Sometimes these “pathways” don’t serve us well and turn into behavioral and cognitive problems such as excessive worry, anxious thoughts, an inability to flexibly move through thoughts or daily tasks, disruptions of sleep/
mood patterns, erosion of relationships, and deterioration of cognitive or physical performance. These problems, along with the “mental/emotional pebbles” we’ve collected in our shoes during our life journey cause us to limp and live life in “quiet desperation.” NeurOptimal® helps your brain shed unhelpful life patterns and organize itself to be resilient and flexible. Wherever you are in life, whether you are young or old, successful or struggling, need some fine tuning and direction in your life, or help with healing from past traumas, Buck walks alongside individuals, helping them find new solutions. His clients report that they become feeling more wholesome, grounded, focused, and centered with their heart and brain reconnected. Call Buck to make an appointment for an initial no cost assessment & neurofeedback session at 760-715-3875.

1. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: Which U.S. highway is known by the nickname “the Mother Road”? 2. FOOD & DRINK: What kind of cocktail contains ginger beer, lime juice and vodka? 3. SCIENCE: What kind of cloud produces thunderstorms? 4. MUSIC: How many musicians play in a quartet? 5. GEOGRAPHY: Which of the seven continents is the driest? 6. MOVIES: What word is on Austin Powers’ license plate in “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery”? 7. HISTORY: What was the ancient Sumerian form of writing called? 8. TELEVISION: What is the name of Bert’s roommate on the children’s show “Sesame Street”? 9. ANATOMY: How many lobes is the human brain divided into? 10. MEASUREMENTS: How much liquid does a standard jigger hold?
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A perplexing situation needs to be dealt with in order to avoid problems later on. Rely on both your own sense of what’s right and the advice of someone you trust to help work it out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Let your sharp Taurean business insight guide you when considering a “dream deal.” Without all the facts, it could turn into a nightmare. Remember: Investigate before investing. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Sharing so much of your time and your gifts with others is what you do so well, and this week, don’t be surprised if others want to share with you. Enjoy the experience. You’ve earned it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A difficult personal situation seems to defy efforts to resolve it. Perhaps you’re too close to it. Take some time to reassess what went wrong, and then see where things can be set right. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leonine pride could be piqued a bit when someone else appears to be standing in your light. Be patient and resist the urge to growl at the interloper. You’ll soon be the “mane” attraction again. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A professional situation benefits from your clear assessment of the circumstances involved. On the personal side, that new relationship looks as if it will continue to grow.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) More good news about a loved one helps reassure others who could not share your more-optimistic view before. Continue to help everyone in need of your comforting presence. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating new friendships could turn out to be the unexpected but welcome result of reconnecting with old friends. The weekend is a good time for fun and games. Enjoy! SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The more you learn about what you plan to do, the more likely you are to consider making some changes in your plans. This is good; don’t resist it. Instead, go with it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A career change is still in your aspect, but a potential workplace change could be what you’ve been looking for. See what develops before making any drastic moves. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your energy levels are high this week, which should help you get all your workaday tasks done and still leave you with enough breath to handle some domestic challenges. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An unexpected fluke could cause problems with your plans. If so, use the time to troll for other available options, and you might be pleasantly surprised at what turns up. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy the company of lots of people, but you also can treasure the moments shared with just one special person. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.

Raw or Roasted, Go Nuts for Nuts
DEAR DR. ROACH: I have seen numerous articles extolling the advantages of eating nuts because they are a good fat. I often have wondered if it matters whether the nuts are raw or roasted. Would you please explain the difference and the impact on one's health? -- D.O. ANSWER: Scientists believe that nuts are healthy for us based on three different types of evidence. One is called "epidemiological": People who eat nuts live longer and have less heart disease than people who don't eat nuts. This suggests nuts are good for you, but it's not definitive. People who eat nuts may do other healthy things, which could be the real reason they live longer (this is called "confounding"). A second line of evidence comes from watching what happens to factors that we believe are related to disease. People who add a reasonable amount of nuts to
their diet often have improvements in their cholesterol levels. They also help some people lose a few pounds, possibly because the fat and protein in nuts makes them more filling than the (often processed) starches many people eat. This is also not definitive, because there are treatments that lower cholesterol but don't make people live longer or improve health. The third is evidence from a large, interventional study on diet. A group of people were randomly assigned to either add more nuts to their diet, or to make no change (or some other change) in their diet. At least one study showed that when people changed their diet to include more nuts and seeds (but also more fruits and vegetables, more healthy oils, like olive oil, and less meat), they had less heart attacks than the group that did not change their diet. This evidence is strong, but it's not clear whether it's one change in the diet (just nuts) or all the changes in the diet that are responsible for the observed benefit. In none of these kinds of studies were raw nuts compared against roasted. However, the composition of the fats does not change in nuts and seeds when roasted, and most experts believe it does not make a difference. So, I recommend partaking in nuts
however you like them best. Just one serving a day (30 grams or an ounce) makes a difference. They are quite high in calories, so it's wise not to overdo it. If you don't like nuts (and obviously for those allergic), not eating them is not a major risk for developing heart disease. DEAR DR. ROACH: You have mentioned diseases of the blood marrow before, but what does the bone marrow actually do? -- T.S.B. ANSWER: The main job of the bone marrow is to produce the different blood cells: red blood cells to carry oxygen; white blood cells to fight infection and cancers; and platelets to stop bleeding. Diseases of the bone marrow can cause problems by making something abnormal (such as leukemia cells), but also by failing at its job and not making what it is supposed to. Low red cell counts lead to anemia; low white cell counts increase risk of infection; and low platelet counts contribute to abnormal bleeding. Bone marrow diseases sometimes can be treated directly, but often treatment involves replacing blood products, and possibly using growth factors to make the bone marrow work better.
